Moverley Flatts residents wrap the Hospice in love!

Published 24 November 2015

Residents of WDH’s Moverley Flatts Independent Living Scheme in Pontefract have taken part in the Prince of Wales Hospice knitting challenge that hopes to wrap the hospice up in one big scarf.

The ‘Wrapped in Love’ initiative has encouraged people across the Five Towns to pick up their knitting needles and get involved in this fantastic project. The plan for the scarf after the end of November is for it to be turned into blankets that can be given to those in need across the local district. 

Margaret Lowe, one of the ladies who took part in the project said: “It’s been lovely to knit again and it is such a good idea. My husband passed away some years ago now at the hospice and the care they gave him was fantastic.”

Irene Dyson, another Moverley Flatts resident who contributed with her knitting skills, said: “I love knitting and this is for a really good cause, I am glad we had the opportunity to get involved.”

Joanne Hammond, WDH’s Residential Scheme Manager at Moverley Flatts, said: “We have some incredible knitters at Moverley, it didn’t take much to encourage them to get involved in such a worthy cause that evoked memories and laughter.”
