Charity knitters are going the extra mile ahead of the Tour de France to support unpaid carers across Yorkshire.

Volunteers for the Carers’ Resource charity, which has offices in Harrogate, Ripon, Shipley and Skipton, have adopted a cycling theme to their annual fundraiser.

The group has teamed up with Cadbury to knit over 1,800 Easter chick covers modelled on the likes of Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome for the chocolate giant’s famous Creme Eggs.

The finished Yorkshire Tour souvenirs will be sold at the charity’s offices in the region.

Anne Wells, events and fundraising coordinator for the charity, said: “We hope, like Le Tour, the chicks capture the Yorkshire public’s imagination.”
