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.
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.
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.
