A Moray charity has launched a knitting pack to keep people stuck at home busy – while also helping babies.
Moray Reach Out has created packs containing wool, knitting needles and a pattern for baby hats. Each one also includes an envelope to send the hats back in so that the group can donate them to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary’s baby unit.
The project, which secured funding from Tesco’s Bags of Help scheme and the Corra Foundation, is already proving popular.
General and business development manager Shona Radojkovic said: “We have been inundated with requests for the project.
“We are trying to reach out the most vulnerable but it is very difficult so we asked for nominations so we hope people would think about people having to self-isolation or just feeling isolation more than others.
“Mental well-being is important to every person.
“We can all fall foul of mental health if we don’t take care of ourselves.
“That’s why we needed to do something that reaches out to people and helps them get through this crisis.”
The charity, which normally supports vulnerable adults get training for jobs, has already sent out more than 30 packs. For information, visit their Facebook page.
