In aid of the Louise Hamilton Trust Hospice appeal
This amazing garden is the result of a two year knitting project by the Louise Hamilton knit and Yarn Group with the help of the Norfolk Knitters and Stitchers. The ladies meet on a Friday afternoon, and between laughter chatter and of course tea and cake, they put their
varying skills to work. The project was carefully planned but it just seemed to grow and grow into a fairy like spectacle.
The Louise Hamilton Trust Hospice appeal has been launched to raise £3million to build a 10-bed hospice unit in the grounds of the James Paget University Hospital.
The hospice beds will drastically change the end-of-life care currently available locally, giving people more options such as receiving the right pain medication before they can go home to spend their final days with loved ones.
The hospice would be connected to the hospital and the Louise Hamilton palliative care centre, which opened on the Paget site in March 2013.

The Butterfly Garden a labour of love
In aid of the Louise Hamilton Trust Hospice appeal this display begins its fund raising journey starting at the James Paget hospital.
Believe it or not this amazing garden hiding in the corner of the hospital foyer is the result of a two year knitting project by the Louise Hamilton knit and Yarn Group with the help of the Norfolk Knitters and Stitchers. The ladies meet on a Friday afternoon, and between laughter chatter a of course tea and cake they put their varying skills to work. The project was carefully planned but it just seemed to grow and grow
into this fairy like spectacle. It is a joy to watch not only the reaction of the children, but also the adults who find it hard to believe that it is in fact knitted or crocheted. Whether it is a flower bed a willow tree or one of the beautiful butterflies or bugs, there is something to catch the eye of each passer by. One lady commented that she had been having a terrible day until she turned the corner and saw the garden with all its vibrant colours and she just had to smile. The garden will continue to bring a smile to many faces until Friday when it will move to Market Gates shopping precinct where it is hoped
that many visitors will come to enjoy this truly fantastic and unusual creation. Many of the ladies involved will be on hand to talk about their work so please pop along and show your support.
