Madeira Lodge Care Home knitting class took a positive turn when attendee, and experienced knitter, Violet enthusiastically took over to share her knitting skills and knowledge with care team member Nicole.

Violet, who has made Madeira Lodge her home, brought her extensive knitting experience to the class, creating an atmosphere of learning and camaraderie.

Her passion for knitting is evident in the intricate patterns and designs she creates. Recognising an opportunity to pass on her skills, Violet took Nicole under her wing, guiding her through the basics of knitting with patience and enthusiasm.

Nicole, who had little experience with knitting before joining the class, expressed her gratitude for Violet's mentorship:

"Violet has been an incredible teacher," Nicole shared. "Not only have I learned a new skill, but I've also built a special bond with her. It's been a truly enriching experience."

The knitting class at Madeira Lodge Care Home is more than just an activity; it is a testament to the vibrant community spirit that thrives within its walls.
