Members of a popular knitting group gathered to celebrate Christmas and help out a worthwhile cause.
The Oakham Knit and Natter Group hosted its Bring and Share Christmas Party at Oakham Castle.
The event included a collection for Rutland Foodbank and food and hand knitted garments were donated.
The group also received a shoebox, along with a card, congratulating it on its first birthday, as well as a hand knitted string of bunting.
Group founder Joyce Lucas said: “We had a wonderful time.”
