The Middlemore Foundation Wool Programme was established 1st June 2000 and currently has over 2,000 dedicated knitters nationwide donating beautifully knitted booties, hats, mittens, vests and blankets to keep our premature babies and newborns in the hospital and the community warm.
We also give larger knitted items to Kidz First Children's Hospital and to our community partners to distribute to tamariki and whaanau in our community.
How you can help
The wool programme is always looking for new volunteers to provide knitting, wool or donations towards materials.
If you would like to help, you can view our patterns and guidelines or donate below.
If you would like to become a drop-off point, please get in touch with us to find out more.
Note: We are currently in short supply of prem and new-born baby hats, booties, vests and blankets.

We need your support.
Your donation will support the wool programme and enable us to provide knitting for our tamariki and families.
