KNITTERS in Burton and South Derbyshire are being invited to take up their needles to help raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis sufferers by making legwarmers for trampolinists.
Trampoline supplier Super Tramp has joined forces with knitwear designer, Rebecca Peach from www.twigsknits.com to offer people a free pattern to make legwarmers in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Trust.
There are more than 9,300 suffering with CF in the UK. Super Tramp will help raise funds for the charity this year.
Sue Piper , senior corporate and trust fund-raising 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 whacky challenge to the nation’s knitters.”
The CF Trust supports excellence in research and clinical care, as well as providing practical support and advice to people and their families.
Laura Gallagher, who is sponsored by Super Tramp and is a world and European medallist trampolinist, will be helping the company to raise money for the CF Trust.
