12,000 bobble hats in Seaton

And Midweek Herald readers knitted them!

A KNITTING project in Seaton received such fantastic support from Midweek Herald readers that volunteers are preparing to send off over 12,000 miniature bobble hats.

The hats were knitted as part of an Age UK Devon fund-raising deal with the makers of Innocent smoothies.

The hats have been designed to snugly fit over the bottle tops.

Age UK volunteer Wendy Millett said: “There has been a tremendous response to our appeal for knitters and we have received a great many of the little hats.

“As a result, we shall be sending off over 12,000 hats from Seaton. Isn’t that amazing?”

The hats will be parcelled up and sent to the drinks manufacturer in time for the October 15 deadline.
