Knit your usual donation

The staff and customers of the Kilmarnock branch of Nationwide Building Society have been knitting up a storm to donate knitted hats, cardigans and baby clothes to the Neonatal Unit (NNU) at University Hospital Crosshouse.

Lesley Gerrish, Branch Manager, Nationwide Kilmarnock said: “We are quite humbled by the work the staff do in the neonatal unit and by all of the little things they do to make things easier for families, such as putting matching bonnets, bootees and blankets in each incubator for babies arriving.

“As a result of how welcomed we were made to feel on our visit, Nationwide Kilmarnock will donate all of our fundraising to the neonatal unit this year, and will keep our campaign for knitting donations going as well.”

Caroline Blake, Clinical Midwife Manager Neonatal Services expressed her gratitude: “We would like to give our heartfelt thanks to Lesley, Susan and their team and customers for their donation and for their generous intentions to dedicate their fundraising to us this year. We will put the lovely knitted baby clothes to excellent use.”
