A GROUP of residents have knitted 50 jumpers for babies diagnosed with HIV in South Africa.
Four residents from Riddell Gardens in Baldock knitted jumpers for the babies after housing officer, Marlene Pike, returned from a visit to the country.
Marlene said: “On a recent trip back to my home country, South Africa, my friend Marjorie showed me the St Theresa Imvana Methodist Womans Auxillary in Johannesburg, who were knitting for HIV babies.
“I took a copy of the pattern and on return to work at Riddell Gardens I asked the residents, who are members of the knitting circle, if they would like to make a few. They ended up making almost 50.”
The jumpers will now be sent to South Africa in the next few months.
