Across the UK and Ireland production of knitted hearts by Mothers' Union is giving hope and spreading love in hospitals, care homes and hospices.
The matching pairs of knitted hearts are given to the patient and their family, so that those receiving support can feel more connected with their relatives, knowing their loved one/family has the other of the pair.
This simple yet meaningful practice is helping residents, patients and their families get through these difficult times.
Pattern, Prayer and directions for small knitted squares with a cross on them called 'mini prayer shawls' for the chaplains at the local hospitals to use. Thank you Oxford Mothers' Union for sharing this idea
