WIGAN knitters are being invited to take up their needles this month and beyond to help raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust by making legwarmers for trampolinists.

Trampoline supplier Super Tramp has joined forces with knitwear designer, Rebecca Peach from to offer people a free pattern to make legwarmers in aid of the CF Trust.

Chris Prentis, Managing Director of Super Tramp, said: “People can download or print off their free knitting pattern by visiting

“Once the legwarmers are knitted we are asking people to send them back in so that they can be sold via our website in the run up to Christmas with all proceeds going to the CF Trust, which is our Charity of the Year.

“Legwarmers are great for garden trampolinists as they help keep their ankles warm in the cooler months.

“They can’t be made of manmade fibres because otherwise they can create too much static when bouncing.”

The CF Trust wants to highlight the health benefits of bouncing to CF sufferers, of which there are more than 9,300 in the UK.

Super Tramp will help raise funds for the charity this year.
