A Malton group held a special workshop at the weekend to make quilts for critically-ill children.

The Malton Country Quilters held a session at the Saville Steet Methodist Church in the town where they heard from nurse Julie Hatton about the work of Linus - a charity that provides quilts and blankets for critically-ill children and babies in hospitals.

Member Gloria Fox mentioned the issue to her husband, Malton butcher Derek Fox, and she also gave a talk to Malton and Norton Rotary Club, of which her husband is a member.

As a result, the Rotarians agreed to help the group with money to buy materials for the workshop and the project.

Workshop organiser Mandy Knaggs said: "We aimed to make 20 quilts of various sizes for those children and babies who need them and it has been a very worthwhile day.

"We are very grateful to the Rotary Club for sponsoring us to help this project."
