A CHARITY knitter has raised £600 with her inventive recycled designs.

Edith Livingstone, 60, made items including scarves and a bag to hold knitting needles out of recycled wool.

Her ingenious work helped raise money for Action for Children, a charity for disadvantaged and neglected children, as part of Fareham Methodist Church’s annual fundraising drive.

Edith said: ‘We chose it because it is a Methodist charity. I think it was fantastic to raise so much because Action for Children as a charity is unique.’

Edith had been working on the items since May after sourcing the wool fabrics from charity shops and using material that had been donated.
