A hardworking group of ladies from Kempsey, Worcestershire have come up with an ingenious way to help British troops abroad from the comfort of their living rooms.
The Cornflower Club for the over 50s has been putting its creative talents to good use by knitting hats
for soldiers in Afghanistan, Worcester News reports.
Villagers David Harrison and his wife Jane Fowler have been volunteering to pack the parcels, which include an array of beanie-style hats in different coloured wool.
The garments have been earning numerous admirers from the front lines, with many praising their ability to keep them warm during 24-hour duty.
As well as the hats, Mr Harrison and Mrs Fowler hand-pack other welfare items into the packs, which include perennial favourites such as socks, packets and dried soup and the odd paddling pool to help the soldiers cool down during their time off.
