“The craft groups have been working hard for weeks making the knitwear and I have to extend our thanks to every person involved.”

Tiny Tots Wardrobe member Betty Martin said: “The unit provides a fantastic service to the West Yorkshire area and we’re only too glad to help.

“It’s nice to think we can do our bit to help the youngest and most vulnerable members in society.”
