"Made with love & respect for the wee ones"
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, knitting 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.
Beezknits also delivers knitwear to Northshore hospital.
