A GROUP of pensioners have picked up their knitting needles to aid two good causes.

Anne Johnson, Doris Baker, Betty Haslam, and Joan Sorrell, who are all residents at Margaret House in Barley, have been busy knitting blankets for the special care baby unit at the Rosie Maternity Hospital.

Margaret added: "As well as blankets, they make hats for the babies, and squares for cat blankets, which are given to Wood Green Animal Shelter at Heydon.
