Thank you to everyone who got knitting for this years campaign!

We sent off a total of over 5,800 hats! We couldn't do this without the incredible support of all our knitters, so thank you for making this possible!

For every bottle sold we receive a donation, which helps us reach more older people across Herefordshire & Worcestershire.

 So grab your needles and your yarn and let's get knitting! It really is this easy: 

Because you've all done so well we don't want you to stop there! We would love to get started on next years campaign and what's better than getting in the mood for christmas than to knit some christmas hats! You can download our christmas patterns below or make your own up!

Need some new ideas to get you going? Why not try: 

  • Encouraging your local knit & natter group to knit hats too! 
  • Setting yourself or a group a 100 hat challenge 

If you would like to receive an information pack or new patterns we'd be more than happy to send them to you.

Don't forget: the date, your name and address & how many hats you've knitted!
