It's hats off to Joan for charity knit

A great-grandmother who knits at the drop of a hat has made 175 mini woolly coverings for smoothie bottles as a part of a campaign to help pensioners keep warm this winter.

Joan Milne, 87, and fellow members of the Movers and Shakers group in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, have knitted hundreds of the tiny hats for drinks firm Innocent's Big Knit event.

The hats can be found on top of the company's smoothie bottles in supermarkets and 25p from the selling price will go to Age UK Bucks to provide blankets, hot meals and hot-water bottles for pensioners living in the area.

The Innocent campaign is now in its 11th year and Joan's efforts are expected to help Innocent pass on £143.50 to the cause.

When she isn't spending time with her extensive family of four children, eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, Joan likes to sit and knit.

She admits that when she picks up her knitting needles she often doesn't know quite what she will create.
