The Big Knit

Published on 12 March 2021 10:41 AM

The Big Knit is a fundraising initiative that has been going since 2021.   During that time, Age UK Enfield has raised nearly £1,000 with over 2,500 wonderful tiny hats being knitted.

With more time on our hands at home, it's the perfect opportunity to join the innocent Big Knit campaign and start knitting little hats for us. Grab your needles and brightest yarn and stat knitting for Age UK Enfield to help us to be there for older people who have no one else to turn to.

If you, or anyone you know, are struggling for activities to keep you busy or you are suffering with anxiety as a result of what's going on in the world, starting a new activity and getting creative can be really beneficial to your mental health. 

We send off your knitted hats and for every behatted innocent smoothie that gets sold, Age UK Enfield  will receive 25p to help older people during the cold winter months. 

How you can get involved:

Get yourself some needles and wool, and pick your pattern:
