Pupils at Forest Hall School, are giving up their spare time to knit and weave bonding squares.

The pairs of squares will be given to mums and babies at the neonatal unit of St Thomas’ Hospital, in London, to help them to bond.

Claire Gannon, textiles and child development teacher, said: “One square goes to the mum and the other goes to the baby. Then, each day, they swap and their scents help with the bonding process.

“We have students knitting and weaving squares during their lunch breaks and mums, nans and members of staff are knitting them at home so the whole community is getting involved.

“Our students like to get behind a cause and they are really enjoying doing it. It’s proving quite a sociable thing to do as they come and knit while they have their lunch.”
