Who knew that those sticky little squares that are stuck on the corners of all those letters and cards that come through your door every day could be so valuable. PreemiesUK take donations of stamps and sell them to make money to purchase wool and other materials to make tiny baby items which are then donated to Early Baby Units all over the country.

Tiny early babies need to be kept warm but their turnover of clothing is really high, all of the items have to be soft, warm but also have to be washed at very high temperatures for hygiene reasons so they don't last long in a hospital setting.

So take a pile of these.... 

and trade them in for some of this....

and then create lots and lots of these....

To keep delicate new lives warm and cosy when they are at their most vulnerable and need the most loving care. 

All this work is done by the lovely volunteer ladies at PreemiesUK just because they can! 

And you can help just by sending your donations of stamps or wool, buttons, ribbon and fabric to:
138 Farmers Green

If you want to offer help with knitting tiny items that is welcome as well, knitters, crocheters and sewers are all helpful and welcome,  more information about PreemiesUK can be found on their FB page just click on the link PreemiesUK Facebook Page
