Iceland and Woolies

The most unusual juxtaposition of 'Iceland' and 'Woolies' in the news in recent months:

People in Iceland - a country currently in desperate economic trouble - have shipped jumpers and blankets to pensioners in England this week, to keep them warm in the winter.

A container of woolies arrived in the north-east of England after an appeal on an Icelandic radio station. They were handed to local charities in Hull on Thursday.

Definitely up there with Kerry Katona as amusing coincidences go.
