Get knitting for charity challenge

IT’S the time of year to get your knitting needles out for a charity challenge.

The Big Knit 2012 is underway and Age UK Todmorden is encourgaing people to make miniature bobble hats to decorate bottles of Innocent smoothies, which will be sold in stores later this year.

Money raised is donated to Age UK.

The Todmorden branch has set itself a target of 7,000 hats before the September 21 deadline. Hats should be dropped off at its Burnley Road office.
