THE Mayor, Councillor Margaret Wilkinson, was pleased to support one of her charities, Age Cymru, recently in their "Big Knit 2013" fundraiser.
Local supporters, council staff and members of the Barry Hookers have been busy knitting little bobble hats and at a reception in the Mayor's Parlour, the Mayor presented 273 colourful hats to Emma Lionel from Age Cymru. The bobble hats will soon be appearing on Innocent Smoothie bottles in Sainsbury' stores across Wales.
Emma says: "Age Cymru and our local partners' across Wales have collected nearly 42,000 hats in total. Sainsburys give Age Cymru a donation for every smoothie hat knitted and money raised by the Big Knit allows us to help older people stay fit, healthy and active during the winter months and keep their homes warm".
