Babies benefit from knitters

PREMATURE babies born throughout Ireland will benefit from the kind-hearted efforts of clients at St Bridget's Day Care Centre in Wexford over the coming months.

The clients at the centre on Roche's Road have been busy knitting clothes for tiny infants in recent months and last week donated the fruits of their labour to Irish Premature Babies, a registered charity working with the parents of premature babies.

Little hats, cardigans and other items of clothing all combined to make a very sizeable donation of top quality clothes. There are some 4,000 premature babies born in Ireland every year and one of the local volunteers who works with Irish Premature Babies visited the centre to share her experiences of giving birth to a baby after just 30 weeks.

A spokesperson for Irish Premature Babies expressed their thanks to everyone at St Bridget's Centre for their hard work and generous donation.
