A six-year-old primary school pupil is aiming to provide Norwich's homeless with 100 knitted scarves.
Lucy Walker started the The Warm Hugs Initiative in an attempt to help homeless people living in the city.
Despite her age, the Bignold Primary School pupil has already started learning how to knit and aims to donate 100 scarves by November this year.
She is also saving her pocket money to buy coats and blankets for them.
With the help of her mum, Stephanie Walker, who lives in the city centre, they have created a Facebook group to help the homeless.
Mrs Walker, 32, said: 'Lucy is very bright, but also very caring and conscious about the things going on the world around her.
'We could not be more proud of her.'
