Mental Health Unit knits for charity


STAFF and patients based at Wirral's NHS Mental Health Unit, Springview, have knitted an astonishing 532 mini hats for an Age UK charity initiative. Led by Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (CWP) Occupational Therapy Assistant Leah Russell, the Springview team have been knitting since October to achieve their incredible total. All the hats will be sent to soft drink giants Innocent, who will in turn donate 25p per item to Age UK as part of their Big Knit campaign.

Leah said:- "We've had a wonderful response from everyone at Springview in support of this great cause, and it has given our patients a real increase in their self esteem. We have also welcomed involvement from community groups based in libraries and a nearby local caf? It has been a great talking point both around the Hospital and in the community."

Sim Viney, Brand Manager at Innocent, said:- "It's the people behind the Big Knit that make it such an amazing campaign. Year after year thousands of people knit us little hats that we sell on our smoothies to help keep older people warm and well in winter. The team at Springview should be really proud."

Springview is CWP's Mental Health Inpatient Unit, based at Clatterbridge Health Park, Wirral. It comprises of 2 acute mental health wards for adults of working age, an older people's mental health ward, an Eating Disorders Ward and a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit.
