Time to whip out the knitting needles and get crafty!

Big Knit Innocent

Age UK and Innocent launch The Big Knit 

Age UK Waltham Forest is calling on nimble-fingered knitters in Waltham Forest to whip out their wool and needles and create little woolly hats for Age UK and innocent’s Big Knit and help older people keep warm, safe and well in winter. 
Now in its 11th year, The Big Knit returns and budding milliners across the UK are being called upon to get inventive and knit miniature woolly hats to adorn innocent smoothie bottles, which will be sold in stores nationwide from February 2015. For each be-hatted smoothie sold, Innocent will donate 25p to help Age UK fund national and local winter projects. Age UK Waltham Forest is calling on local knitters to get as many hats as possible to them by 24th October 2014 and needs knitters and those wanting to give it a go of all ages to help make this a reality.
Each year, as many as 25,000 older people in the UK die because of the cold . With over a decade of support from knitters up and down the country, The Big Knit has raised vital funds to support local and national winter projects to help older people keep warm in winter. 
Last year alone, more than a million hats were lovingly created, with designs including a giant squid, fruit, soldiers, peas in a pod, cupcakes and an ice cream cone topped with a classic flake.
