The Mile of Mice Challenge ~ Wednesday 30th Oct

Goodness it's almost upon us the great Guinness Book of records attempt to have knitted a mile of mice (OVER 7,000 mice needed for this challenge) 

AND there will be a knitted Pied Piper leading them. How cool is that?
Knitted by Brenda adapting an Alan Dart pattern, which will be raffled on the measure day 30th October 2013 

The Mile of Mice Challenge sponsor money  raised goes to the Alzheimer's Society
Why not go along and see if they have achieved their goal and buy some mice or bid for the Piper himself...

MILE OF MICE Measurement day
Wednesday 30th October 2013
At Altrincham Football Club 
WA15 8AP Tel: 0161-928-1045

Starting at 11am 
Lunch will be provided

This will be an opportunity for all the knitters to see the whole mile of mice laid out and to witness it being measured.

The Alzheimer’s Society is going to be present and hopefully we will get the chance to sell some of the wonderful mice!


UPDATE: On the day, They ended up with 1.9 miles and the money now raised for Alzheimer's stands at £8,917.16 which is absolutely wonderful!
