The group use unwanted wool to make hats and other items. But rather than unravel Dusty’s half-finished jumper, they completed it. When the group next met, member Helen- Ann Wilson-Reid surprised Dusty with the jumper, leaving him speechless and tearful.

A spokeswoman from the museum, where Dusty volunteers, said: ‘Kindness runs in the veins of the Red Hat Knitting Group.’

They meet every Saturday at 11am.
