Keen craftspeople are making lots of little bobble hats for Age UK’s Big Knit campaign 2013.

This year Age UK Todmorden hopes to knit 7,000 little hats and raise around £1,700 for older people in the town.

Betty Crabtree and Margaret Grant have already knitted 900 hats for the campaign.

Patterns are available from the Age UK Todmorden office, 11 Burnley Road.
