The innocent Big Knit campaign has returned and Age UK Bromley and Greenwich is calling on the knitters and crocheters of Bromley and Greenwich to get their knitting needles out to help raise urgent funds for older people most in need.
This is the 18th year that innocent has been running the Big Knit in partnership with Age UK and woolly warriors are needed again this year to craft some little hats to sit on innocent smoothie bottles. For each be-hatted smoothie sold, Age UK receives 25p, which will help the Charity make a big difference to the lives of older people.
With many of us spending lots of time at home at the moment, it’s a great opportunity for stitching superstars to get crafting, or for knitting newbies to grab some needles and give it a whirl. The pandemic has had a huge impact on older people over the past year, so Age UK is in need of these little hats more than ever to help raise funds for its vital services.
For more information on The Big Knit call Volunteering at Age UK Bromley and Greenwich on 0208 315 1883/1873 or visit www.ageuk.org.uk/bigknit . Please send completed hats to Age UK Bromley and Greenwich at Community House, South Street, Bromley, Kent BR1 1RH.
There are six exciting new hat designs for this year, including a rainbow, rabbit, cupcake, pom pom, fox and bird. These knitting and crochet patterns are available to download, to find out more visit: www.ageuk.org.uk/bigknit or www.thebigknit.co.uk.
Our target is to knit 5000 hats!
We have knitted 2718 hats so far!
We have 2282 to go by the end of September 2021!
