Keen knitters can now help horses abroad by getting busy with their needles.

The Society for the Protection of Animals Abroad (SPANA) has launched a campaign that encourages people to get knitting in order to help raise funds.

Fundraisers can be sponsored to knit their very own Duncan the donkey, Hattie the horse or crochet Clarence the camel as part of the Big Knit for Vet Kit aimed at helping sick and injured working animals abroad.

The campaign is being supported by model Twiggy Lawson.

“I know everyone will have so much fun knitting their very own gorgeous camels, horses and donkeys, with the money raised helping SPANA treat a real working animal in one of their clinics in Africa or the Middle East,” Twiggy said.
