Norwich crafters have been asked to ready their needles in preparation for a fundraiser with a twist.

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) has launched their Big Stitch campaign, which asks local crafters to put their stamp on charity items.

Style magpies are invited to buy an item from the Norwich BHF shop, and customise it with their own ideas.

The best will be in with a chance of winning one of three fantastic prizes.

Sonya Pringle, the Area Manager for the BHF's Norwich shop said: 'We are really excited to see shoppers from Norwich injecting their own fashion flair in to our vast range of high quality donated clothes and accessories.'
