People are being invited to pile on the pounds for a good cause at Peak Village this New Year as Rowsley's outlet Shopping Centre launches 'The Old Station Building Knitathon', where each purl stitched in time will help to raise vital funds for national charity Crohn's and Colitis UK.

Peak Village is hoping to knit communities together by raising funds for Crohn’s and Colitis UK.

The Rowsley-based shopping outlet has just launched The Old Station Knitathon and its aim is to knit a scarf that stretches around the shopping centre – and back again.

A ‘knitting chair’ will be placed in the Old Station Building at Peak Village and for a £1 donation for adults (50p for children) would-be knitters are invited to knit a length to add to the scarf.

Terrance Morgan, a spokesman for Peak Village, said: “We hope adults and children alike will come and have a go for a good cause. There’s some great prizes on offer too.”
