The Club utilises the resources within its membership to support the premature babies. These little ones need all the help they can get to give them a fighting chance to be future bowlers.
Our members knit booties, hats, mittens, vests, blankets and much more to keep the premature babies and new-borns leaving Kidz First Hospital warm.
From a small informal group the “BeezKints” have been formed, kniting for a specific purpose and donating all.
The "BeezKnits" operate from the Club, where the Birkenhead Bowling Club has become a drop-off point, delivering knitwear to Middlemore on a regular bases.
If you’re keen to help out or join the “BeezKnits” contact Emmie (0275 297 297) or Louise (021 2367121).
Talking to a member of the Middlemore Foundation Wool Progamme they currently need knitted blankets, peggy squares and cardigans.
Donations of wool (4 ply & 8 ply) to the Club (or money to purchase wool) will be gratefully accepted at the Club, it is amazing how far one ball of wool or $5 will go for the wee ones.
