A Whitley-Bay based umbrella charity has recruited 40 volunteer knitters with the aim of providing 1,000 knitted garments each year to North Tyneside General Hospital.

The first ward to benefit under the Angels of the North’s arrangement was the Midwife Led Maternity Unit to which 200 items of knitwear were given.

Ward manager Karen Gregan said: “We were delighted to receive the kind donations of lovely knitted babywear.”
