AGE Concern in Seaton has thanked volunteers who took part in its Big Knit Challenge.

Over 3,300 little knitted pot-warmers and bobble hats were donated, which will be put on Innocent Smoothies, Squeezies and Veg Pots - with a 35p donation to the charity for every one sold.

Volunteer Wendy Millett said: "We have no idea how many people got involved to help us achieve this result, but they all know who they are, and we'd like them to know that we are very grateful.

"The money raised will help to ensure that Age Concern Devon's presence in Seaton can continue."

The Innocent products with the winter warmers are currently on sale at Sainsbury's across the UK.
