PUPILS from Cwmfelinfach Primary School have knitted 40 blankets for the special care baby unit in Newport.

The seven to 11-year-olds were taught to knit by Wendy Brooks as part of the Enriched Curriculum.

School staff decided to donate the blankets to the Special Care Baby Unit at the Royal Gwent Hospital, as one of the staff has a granddaughter who was born at 24 weeks.

Teaching assistant Lisa Dark’s daughter Natalie had baby Lola in August last year. The school heard that the unit needed blankets, so they spent the year knitting and crocheting.

Last year the school donated the blankets to the Dog’s Trust.
