Can you knit or do you know someone who can?

We are S5 pupils and we would love it if you could help us out. As part of our YPI project, we have selected the charity ‘Bliss’. 

Bliss is a UK charity dedicated to supporting mothers with premature babies and ensure that every baby born premature or sick has the best chance of survival. To  support the charity we have started knitting clothing items, which we will donate to the Simpsons maternity unit, where Bliss is located.

We have set up a donation spot in Mr Redford's room, where you can drop off the knitted items. Many of the patterns are simple and easy to follow, and it would make a big difference to the lives of many babies and their family as there is currently a shortage of clothing items in the neonatal unit. For patterns either visit the Bliss website where they can be downloaded free or contact one of us.

Please do not hesitate to contact Julia, Hannah or Kate by email if you have any questions and if you would like to help support us.

After a number of parents/carers have experienced issues with the delivery of our Daily Updates, and some investigation, we are going to start sending these from office@ka-net.org.uk.

If you have just started receiving again after a period of time, please let us know.  Sorry for the inconvenience that this has caused over recent weeks.  It appears that even though emails have successfully been sent that email providers such as Google Gmail and Apple iCloud have been rejecting the MailChimp emails before delivery.
