Doris is making a difference!
Here at Brockington House,, Doris is busy knitting away daily making batches of beautiful cardigans, little hats, gloves and booties for premature babies.
Doris stepped up to the challenge and has been knitting for the Neonatal Unit in Kingston Hospital Surrey, where her great granddaughter works as a nurse, ever since she learnt there was a shortage of premature baby clothes.
Doris has knitted for 92 years since the age of four! Taught by her father, her and sibling would all knit in the shelter by candle light during the Second World War using wool that was donated by the service women for them to knit for the soldiers.
Knitting daily keeps Doris fit and the following of patterns and counting rows is keeping her mind active.
Well done, Doris, we think you are truly amazing giving your time and talent to a great cause.
