A SUPER-SCARF is helping to raise charity cash in a competition.

The hand-knitted neck warmer was made by Philip Bampton.

Now people have to guess how long it is.

Philip, 39, lives in a home in Halifax run by the Bridgewood Trust charity, which offers residential and day services for people with learning disabilities.

One of Philip's friends is nine-year-old Archie Bailey, of Stocksmoor.

Archie, who goes to Thurstonland First School, goes to a Saturday day centre organised by the Huddersfield Crossroads charity, which provides support for carers.

Crossroads will also benefit from the proceeds of the competition.

Mrs Christine Booth, of New Mill, who is Philip's godmother and Archie's grandmother, said: "Philip has been knitting the scarf for several months. We thought it would be a good way to help the charities."

It will be on show at Morrison's store in Waterloo on Saturday and Sunday.

People will be asked to guess its length, in return for a donation. The winner gets a £100 prize.
