News > Charity knitting group knit cannula covers for babies

During the Michaelmas term, the charity knitting group set out to knit cannula covers for new-born babies hospital. The knitted sleeves looked like small cylindrical tubes that fit over a babies arm. They are used to stop the new-born from scratching the cannula out or damaging the skin around it. During the first lock-down, Year 13 pupil Abbie Boast knitted 35 sleeves. The rest of the knitting group contributed a further 16 when we returned to school in September. Abbie is currently in the process of donating them to the James Paget Hospital in Great Yarmouth.
