Newquay's Kimberley Court care home backs Big Knit campaign
Staff and residents at a Newquay care home have backed a major campaign to ensure elderly people are kept warm this winter.
Kimberley Court collected dozens of knitted bottle hats as part of the Big Knit campaign.
The joint initiative between Age UK and Innocent drinks sees 25p donated to the charity for each bottle of Innocent drink sold with a hat on the top. The money will go towards making sure elderly people are kept warm this winter.
Residents and staff at the care home collected many hats before sending them into the campaign last month, with the help of the Newquay community which donated their knitted delights.

Lorraine Young, hospitality manager, said amongst the favourites were a ‘fez’, a penguin and strawberries.
She said: “We have been overwhelmed by the response we got from our residents and local community. Mr Bedford, Mrs Tonks, Mr Madge and Mrs Tonkin were delighted with the hats that had been made.
“Meaningful activity is extremely important to our residents, and Belinda, our activities co-ordinator does a wonderful job to ensure there is always something exciting to take part in.
“Amongst the favourites were a ‘fez’, penguin and strawberries. It has been wonderful to take part in the event that will go towards raising money for Age UK and keeping people warm this winter.
“The staff and residents would like to extend their thanks to those who took part in the Big Knit, and are once again extremely grateful for the support shown to us from our local community.”
