KNITTERS in Todmorden are half way towards their target of making 8,000 woolly hats and are looking for help to reach their goal.

As part of the Big Knit 2011, Age Concern Todmorden set knitters the target, which has a deadline of September 30. Last week, knitters passed the 4,000 mark. Age Concern holds a knit and natter group once a fortnight at Central Methodist Church, at which knitters can chat and help make the little hats, which will go on top of bottles of Innocent smoothies to raise funds for Age UK’s Spread the Warmth scheme.
