A cake knitted by a group of women from Bristol will be presented to St Peter's Hospice later. >The "Knutty Knitters" have made it to celebrate raising £100,000 in memory of one of their members who was cared for by the charity. They reached the target by creating a life-sized "Knitivity" scene which even appeared on national television.

The group of six women from Bristol dubbed ‘The Knutty Knitters’, began fundraising for the local hospice three years ago and have since reached the six-figure total through a series of wacky fundraisers.

The knitters, made up of Alison, Jean Richards, Anne Iles, Eileen Agnew, Pat Dardis and Julia Worth, all worked together at St Teresa’s Catholic Primary School in Monks Park and started knitting together in their spare time.
