A group has spent six months knitting clothes for babies.

The Sainsbury’s Veterans Group Solent Branch decided to take part in a knit-a-thon to make clothes for the special care baby unit, at Queen Alexandra Hospital, in Cosham.

The group started knitting the clothes in September and donated them to the hospital last week.

Member Hazel Flahey said: ‘The challenge started in a small way but rapidly expanded with members knitting hats, jackets and blankets in a beautiful array of patterns and colours.

‘It gives the parents a memento when they take their baby home to see how small they used to be.’
