The Leanne Fund are putting a call out to avid knitters around the regions they work in to support their Hello Little One initiative.
The Leanne Fund recently launched the Hello Little One baby box service to provide support to families following their little ones Cystic Fibrosis diagnosis. The boxes complement the government baby box, providing a range of essential items. Since the launch in early June, The Leanne Fund have supported 11 families across the country with this service.
A meeting with Bellann from the Lewis Volunteer Centre and Bella from Generations Working Together inspired us to think about how we could become more involved in intergenerational working for the benefit of the individuals and families we support.
With this in mind we are putting a call out to older members of our communities to get their knitting needles clicking to create specific items that we can include in our Hello Baby boxes which welcome the tiniest members of our CF community.
Ronah Muir, Project Support Officer for the Fund added, ‘hand knitted hats and cardigans will be a lovely finishing touch to the baby box service which have proved to be so valuable to new families over the past few months.’
The Leanne Fund can supply materials as required. For more information about how you can become involved please contact Chrisetta or Ronah on 01851702020, or email email@example.com
