Bristol’s unique ‘Knitivity’
Published on: 31 Oct 2013
CHRISTMAS cards featuring Bristol’s unique ‘Knitivity’ scene have gone on sale in St Peter’s Hospice shops in Downend and Staple Hill.
The life-sized tableau was created last year by a group of six women who called themselves the Knutty Knitters.
The cards, showing the characters in front of the Clifton Suspension Bridge in the snow, cost £4 for a pack of 10 and are available in all 46 of the charity’s shops.
St Peter’s Hospice head of shops Janet Loud said: “The Christmas cards we sell in our shops always go down a storm with customers and we’re expecting the special Knutty Knitters cards to be even more popular this year.”
St Peter’s Hospice, now in its 35th anniversary year, cares for more than 2,670 patients every year, as well as supporting family members. It costs £6.8 million to run the hospice yearly.
