Big Knit bottles now on sale across Cheshire helping to raise money for Age UK Cheshire

Published on 26 November 2019 12:07 PM

Next time you pop to the supermarket keep an eye out for innocent’s limited edition be-hatted bottles, on sale throughout November as part of the Big Knit campaign, now in its 16th year. Each of the special bottles carries a 25p donation to Age UK to help the Charity continue to be there for older people in Cheshire who have no one else to turn to.

Over the past year the people of Cheshire have been knitting and purling like never before and have helped Age UK knit 1.5 million miniature hats for the latest Big Knit campaign

Georgina Alexander-Pulham, Marketing Officer at Age UK Cheshire said: “We’re so pleased with how much support the Big Knit has received over the years – this year we received 6,725 little hats from our devoted knitters in Cheshire, which is just fantastic.  We can't wait to see the latest hat creations on sale.

“We want to thank everyone who has knitted a hat or bought a Big Knit smoothie to support the Big Knit. The campaign helps us to make a difference to the lives of older people in Cheshire. Money raised from the be-hatted bottles will help to fund essential services that tackle loneliness and isolation and bring older people together in their communities.”

Emilie Stephenson, Head of Brand at innocent drinks, said: “Every year we’re overwhelmed by the number of hats which come through our doors and it’s brilliant to see the unique hats that are sent our way.

“We would love to thank everyone in Cheshire who supports the Big Knit from the knitters to smoothie drinkers. It’s great to take a moment and truly celebrate the intricacy and creativity of the hats. A hats off to all the knitters.”
