This is an appeal on behalf of myself (Emma Gregson) and all of my wonderful NHS colleagues at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital Intensive Care Unit, where I work.
All our poorly patients are unable to have visitors at the moment, I am putting out a plea for any knitters or crocheters to please help us make this a tiny bit easier for them and their families at this really difficult time. I am asking for small knitted or crocheted hearts to be made, one will go to the poorly patient and one will go to the family (preferably matching). If you don’t have a pattern here is the link for one. This will offer much needed comfort for our relatives and patients at this incredibly difficult time.
If you can help, and live locally to us we can arrange a non-contact collection from you, or you are welcome to drop them at our house (as part of your daily walk, so no extra journeys are made)
All the hearts will get laundered before being given to patients and their families.
