100% wool blankets for families in Lower Hutt SCBU (Special Care Baby Unit)

The Neonatal Trust does amazing work for our community every year. To celebrate that Stansborough held their annual Winter Charity Support Week recently where every sale went towards helping gift 64 cosy Stansborough woollen blankets to neonatal babies in the Wellington region this winter.

15 Lower Hutt families and 49 Wellington families have taken home a blanket with their new bundle of joy thanks to the generosity of Cheryl and her Stansborough team, as well as its customers.

Georgie was born early and couldn’t regulate his own body heat. By being gifted a wool blanket made by Stansborough in Petone he was snugly wrapped in a beautiful, natural, and most importantly breathable material. Synthetic and acrylic materials can cause premature babies, like Georgie, to overheat so being wrapped in his very own Stansborough blanket meant he can could focus on growing and developing.

Be sure to check in with Stansborough next winter to see who they are supporting next.
