The Big Knit 2016/17

For over 10 years people have kindly knitted and donated thousands of little hats for Age UK Barnet raising money through the national Big Knit campaign. The hats are worn by little bottles of innocent drinks which go on sale in stores around the country in November. For each hat that we send off, Age UK Barnet gets 25p from Innocent Drinks.

Details of the Big Knit 2016 will be up later this year.

Skydive to fundraise for Age UK Barnet

Fancy a challenge or know someone who needs one? Age UK Barnet has the perfect opportunity…Skydiving!
Just imagine standing at an open doorway 10,000 feet from the ground; the rush of adrenaline as you lean forwards out of the aircraft and experience a freefall at over 120mph! Then, the canopy opens and you glide through the sky, absorbing the tranquil atmosphere surrounding you.

The great news is you jump for free.  All you have to do is raise a minimum amount of sponsorship of which Age UK Barnet receives an average donation of £135. 

You can choose from:-

  • A tandem skydive with an instructor £395
  • “Static Line” solo jump £360
  • Accelerated freefall solo jump £535
