Marianne Kitching and Shirley Whitfield from the Thornaby Methodist Church Knitting Club created the colourful gifts to help keep the residents cosy during the winter months.

 

They dropped off eight blankets at Mandale House Care Home, on Acklam Road, and plan to knit more over the coming months.

 

Michael Allen, home manager, said: “We’re so grateful to the ladies of the Thornaby Methodist Church Knitting Club for their generous donation.

 

“The residents love the blankets and have already picked their favourites.
