KNITTING FOR RED NOSE DAY

Knitting needles were clacking for ‘World Knit In Public Day,’ with some taking the opportunity to help out families in need.

A group of knitters from around Tamworth came together to create items for the Treasured Babies program, which supports parents who have lost a newborn child.

“Little beanies, cardigans, bunny rugs- all sort of things that they need for the babies that unfortunately don’t make it, we make these so that they can be put to rest in lovely little outfits,” says Samara Butler.
