One of the Freemen of the Guild, Jane Davis, who is currently leading the Family Support and Liaison Team at the NHS Nightingale Hospital London has asked for help from all you knitters and stitchers out there!

Please could you make 2 (or more) knitted or felt hearts to be sent to the team for use at the hospital – one is given to the relative and one kept with the patient “as a token of love and support”.

If you would like to do this, then follow the link here to find a pattern and address for posting to Jane. If you would prefer to make them out of felt, they should be of a similar size and padded in the same way and there many other patterns and images available on the internet.

I know that Jane would like me to thank you for your support and good wishes.
