The Big Knit 2020/2021 - These little hats can make a big difference!

Pick up your knitting needles & join in ‘The Big Knit’ & for every little hat we send to innocent to put on their drinks bottles, they will donate 25p to help us banish loneliness!

The Big Knit has already started and will run through to October 2021 but don't wait until then to get them to us! We welcome your little hats at any time!

Corporate Involvement

We are now working in partnership with the Co-op Community

We’re delighted the Co-op Local Community Fund have selected Age UK Herne Bay & Whitstable to support.

We are one of three causes in our local community which Co-op Members can select to support between now and 23 October 2021. The more members who select us and shop with the Co-op, will help us to purchase some voice-activated electronic devices to demonstrate to older people how they could help tackle social isolation and keep connected with each other.

To support us all you need to do is complete a Co-op Membership for £1.

Alternatively, you can apply to become a Member:
by downloading the Co-op App from the App store
by visiting
by phone: 0800 023 4708
by picking up a temporary card in one of their Food Stores

We would be so grateful if you would nominate Age UK Herne Bay and Whitstable as your chosen local Charity.  Your support will mean so much to so many. Thank you.
