I was born premature nearly 30 years ago and spent the first four months of my life in the NICU. My parents made sure I understood from a young age how life changing the support of the Doctors, Nurses and support Staff are for premmies and their families. Ever since I was young, I've always wanted to give back and help the NICU since they helped my family and I so much.

I now run the Premmie Knitting Club (with a huge amount of help from my mum and a few other special people), a tribe of knitters from across New Zealand and Australia, knitting for premature babies in the NICU. In 2018, we donated thousands of wee knitted items to the Well Foundation!

Many of the people I've spoken to have asked if there's a way that they can support without knitting so I've created this page. I will be donating all funds raised to the Well Foundation's SCBU unit.

If you're a knitter and want to donate blankets, beanies etc, please check out www.premmieknittingclub.org

Please let me know if you have any questions at all!

I am doing my annual Premmie Knitting Club appeal and will be donating to the SCBU on behalf of people who would prefer to donate money rather than knitting.

Thanks Newshub!  8 May 2018

Over the weekend, the Premmie Knitting Club appeared on Newshub explaining why the Well Foundation needs knits for the wee premmies in the NICU. It was fantastic to be part of such a cool story and the response has been incredible! So many awesome people have reached out offering their support, from knitting to donating wool and much more. THANK YOU! To watch the clip, take a look here: http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/health/2018/05/nz-hospitals-asking-the-public-for-help-knitting-clothes-for-premature-babies.html
