TALENTED residents from a residential home in Nailsea have knitted a host of toys for terminally ill children.

Rosemary Knibbs, aged 85, and Lily Gould, aged 97, of Laurel Court Residential and Nursing Home, Brockway, spent hours making a woollen dolls house, complete with a fireplace, sofa and Christmas stockings, as well as a Christmas cake and festive toys to donate to the Children's Hospice South West in Wraxall.

The plucky pensioners also stripped off for a 2008 calendar for the cause and will be handing over the toys and the money they have raised to the hospice this Christmas.

Lily said: "We knitted it all without patterns and even made 70 tiles for the roof. We're looking forward to meeting the children when we give them the toys.
