Knit to raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis charity
SALISBURY knitters are being invited to take up their needles to help raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Trust by making legwarmers for trampolinists.
Trampoline supplier Super Tramp has joined forces with knitwear designer, Rebecca Peach from twigsknits.com to offer people a free pattern to make legwarmers in aid of the CF Trust.
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 in the run up to Christmas 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.”
Super Tramp was founded more than 25 years ago when it introduced the first garden trampolines into the UK.
The CF Trust is the UK’s only national charity dealing with all aspects of CF.
