Knitwitz representatives (left) Leila Stokes and (right) Marie Kelleher present Southland Hospital Children's Ward Receptionist, Paulline Gillan (centre) with their latest donation of handknitting.
Another delivery of beautiful knitting from a group of Invercargill women with talented hands and big hearts was donated to the Children’s Ward at Southland Hospital recently.

Knitwitz are part of the Pay-It Forward action group at South Alive, and the group meets weekly at The Pod community rooms to connect through laughter and their love of knitting.

Their talents benefit those in need in our community by knitting a range of slippers, blankets, beanies and singlets for new-born and at risk-babies. Almost every month, they generously take their latest creations to Southland Hospital where they are shared by Children’s Ward and the Maternity Unit.

Thank you to the wonderful ladies from Knitwitz!
