Being congratulated by members of the St John the Baptist Church, and members of the Mothers Union 29th July, Maureen Hawkins better known to her friends as ‘Grannie Mo’, displays her 900th blanket crocheted for the charity that she supports, ‘Born too Soon’
Since the year 2000 ‘Mo’ has made 900 blankets for the neonatal unit at Kingston Hospital. Her original promise was to make two blankets a month for one year. During the past thirteen years she has given talks to several groups and as a result has taken 1187 items – all hand made – to the hospital. This is on top of her own 900 blankets.
She would like to thank everyone for their generosity to these very tiny special babies.
