Subject: RE: Trauma teddies, hats and blankets


Hello Angela & Frances,

It was such a pleasure to meet you both yesterday, and thank you very much for taking to time to deliver all the lovely baby items and teddies to the hospital.   Please would you pass on our grateful thanks to everyone involved.  The hard work and knitting skills in providing teddies to the children's services are greatly appreciated - especially by our youngest patients - and it is rather reassuring that in these days of hi-tech and computer games, that it is a little teddy that can bring so much comfort to children, and the delighted on their faces when they know teddy can go home with them ...well that's priceless.

I have delivered the baby hats and blankets too and our neo natal unit staff are very grateful for your support.   It is such a great comfort to anxious parents to see baby in proper clothes with a beautifully knitted blanket, and is a welcome distraction from all the monitors, tubes and bleeps that surround their tiny baby.  So from all our new mummies and daddies, and our staff may I offer a heartfelt thank you to everyone from the WI for your generosity and support.

Please keep up the good work - I look forward to meeting you again soon.

With kindest regards, Yvonne
