What we do
Our visits to hospital and nursing home patients have been scaled down due to Work Health and Safety requirements so delivering has become more of a priority.
Members supply the Committee with knitted teddies, knitted and crocheted rugs, breast cushions, calico dolls, face washers with crocheted edges, twiddle muffs, bed socks, premie baby hats and bootees, knitted clothes for new born babies and children 3-6 months and 6-12 months, as well as items for Emergency Packs.

Some branches are most generous in supplying a lot of the above items to State Office and we try to send as many thank you notes as possible. Please be assured that whatever appears on our shelves is carefully thought about and distributed to as many places as possible and appropriate.
Please support your local hospital, nursing home or women’s refuge where possible. We would love to hear what your Group or Branch does for Hospital Support. Please send a report to the Committee.
