The Loom Band craze has hit Kenilworth in a fundraising frenzy as charitable children got weaving to help bring in much-needed hospice funds.

The Askew family held a street party for their neighbours in Faircroft to bring in cash for Myton Hospice.

Alongside a raffle and activities organised by their parents, children Jenny and Ben teamed up with friend Courtney from the street to get weaving and make bracelets to sell during the day.

The popular craze involves weaving jewellery from coloured elastic bands and has swept the country over the past few months.

And the crafty children cashed in as their bracelets made £60 for the hospice charity which dad, Bob Askew said was a fantastic effort.
