Knitters in East Lancashire wanted for charity effort
11:16am Monday 28th January 2013 in News
KNITTERS in East Lancashire are being invited to take up their needles and make legwarmers for trampolinists in a bid to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
A free pattern has been designed by Rebecca Peach from www.twigsknits.com after she has joined forces with trampoline supplier Super Tramp for the cause.
Sue Piper, senior corporate and trust fundraising manager for the charity, said: “We know that families with children who have CF often use trampolines as a fun way to help them do their daily physio and we’re delighted to be part of this wacky challenge to the nation’s knitters.”
Chris Prentis managing director of Super Tramp, said: “Once the legwarmers are knitted we are asking people to send them back in so that they can be sold via our website with all proceeds going to the CF Trust, which is our Charity of the Year.
“Legwarmers are great for garden trampolinists as they help keep their ankles warm in the cooler months.
“They can’t be made of manmade fibres because otherwise they can create too much static when bouncing.”
The knitting pattern can be downloaded or printed off by visiting supertramp.co.uk
