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 Faversham & Sittingbourne receives 25p.

This year we are aiming big and are targeting a record year of 3000 hats made this is 1000 more than we normally achieve but WE CAN DO IT. If we hit our target, we will make £750 which would cover the cost for 35 lonely people to have some company.

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 below:



Katie Simpson, Head of Brand at innocent drinks, said: "We’re delighted to be working with Age UK on the Big Knit once again. After a hard year, we want to make this campaign as big as possible so we can help more older people than ever. We’re incredibly grateful to all the heroic volunteers helping us get there”
