Knitting club gets £250k Lotto fund

A "knit and natter" group has been given a grant of nearly £250,000 from the Big Lottery fund so that 2,000 volunteers can carry on making blankets for charity.

Norfolk Knitters and Stitchers started in 2008 to stop older people feeling isolated or lonely, now it has grown to 85 groups across the East.

Dawn Gerber reports.
