Age UK and Innocent smoothies have teamed up again for the 13th year of our Big Knit partnership and we would like to make a huge thank you to EVERYONE that got involved to make this the ‘Biggest Big Knit Ever’!

Our target this year was an ambitious 6,000 little knitted hats, the most we have ever had and double our target from 2016.  We are pleased to announce that we have succeeded!!

All of the hats we have received are beautiful and we have had some really imaginative ones! 

Whether you’re an experienced knitter or a beginner every hat really has made a difference to Age UK Surrey.  For every hat we sent in we receive 25p… that’s £1,500 to help older people in Surrey.  

The smoothies, wearing their little hats, will be sold in supermarkets nationwide for several weeks during October 2017.  

Please remember to keep on knitting for us to ensure we reach our target next year!  More information will be released soon. 

How you can get involved:

Whether you're a professional knitter or have never picked up a pair of knitting needles before we need you! Fear not, it's easy to get started.

Be prepared: 

Get yourself comfortable and some needles and wool (we have kindly had some donated to us, please feel free to pop along and pick some up).

Send us your hats:

Package up your lovely hats and get them to us by mid/end of July 2017.

How the Big Knit helps older people:

The Big Knit is a joint campaign between Age UK and Innocent drinks to help vulnerable older people. With over a decade of support from knitters up and down the country, the campaign has raised vital funds to support local and national winter projects to help older people keep warm and well in winter through befriending visits, emergency cold weather support, warm meals and other vital services.
