Knitting residents at St Mary’s care home in Scunthorpe have spent months crafting winter warmers for our rescue dogs.

Samantha Weston, Deputy Centre Manager at our North Lincolnshire centre said: “We were delighted when St Mary’s contacted us and told us how the wonderful residents had created the winter warmers for our dogs.

“We rely on volunteers to help us provide the best possible level of care for our furry residents and these winter warmers are greatly appreciated.”

Residents and staff from St Mary’s visited the centre in Broughton this week to deliver their hand crafted coats and blankets.

Stella Bradley, activities co-ordinator at St Mary’s, said: “Our residents have been knitting like mad for months and we’re all delighted to have made 2 blankets, 6 coats and a toy. Our residents love knitting, and they love animals, so it was only natural to bring the two passions together to help Jerry Green Dog Rescue provide some extra home comforts for the rescue dogs.”

We’d like to say a huge thank you to all of the lovely residents for their kind and beautiful donations! Our rescue dogs will be nice and toasty this Christmas!
