Photo: SIMON WATTS Knitters honoured By MELISSA KINEALY Knitting is bringing together a hos- pital, a prison and needy babies. A large group of Counties Manukau women -- and a couple of men -- volun- teer their time by knitting clothing and blankets for babies at Kidz First children's hospital. Around 100 nifty knitters turned out at Kidz First for the annual Knitter Natter afternoon tea held in their honour to thank them for their efforts. It was organised by the South Auck- land Health Foundation, the regis- tered charitable trust that supports and raises funds for the health services provided by Counties Manu- kau District Health Board, including Kidz First. This time they also got to hear Auck- land Women's Prison manager Agnes Robertson talk about how a pilot knit- ting programme is giving prisoners a new purpose. Women at the prison are knitting peggy squares, sewing them up and making them into blankets for needy babies. The prison is planning to set up an arts and craft centre that will include knitting, sewing, pottery, weaving and more. Many inmates are mothers and are in need of outside contact, Ms Robert- son says. The prison's volunteer assist- ant chaplain Nina Haines says knit- ting helps promote a calmness in the women -- one told her when she's using the wool she feels the aroha''. Knitter Selina Fletcher from Howick knows all about that feeling. She's been knitting for the foundation's wool programme for eight years and along with volunteer Aileen Dickinson she helps package and distribute the parcels of woollies to needy babies. Call the South Auckland Health Foundation on 270-8808 for more information on how to get involved in the programme.
