SUMMER may be just around the corner, but that did not stop staff and residents at Vauxhall Court residential home being grateful for some specially-knitted blankets.

The home, on Freiston Road in Boston, recived a bundle of blankets put together by knitters from the Boston-based K1 P1 project, including a special red, white and blue one designed especially for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

Women involved in the project knit blankets and baby items for people in the Gambia, hospitals, women’s aids and others in need.
