Knitting for us
Do you like to click your needles together and create wonders in wool? If so why not consider knitting for Age UK Horsham District?
We run three knitting campaigns a year:
Easter Knitting – please knit small Easter novelties, such as Easter chicks for us, fill with chocolates and send to us to sell. Last year this initiative raised just over £200 for Age UK Horsham District
Big Knit - we are delighted to take part in the national charity, Age UK’s Innocent Smoothie Big Knit
You can help us by knitting small bobble hats that can be worn by Innocent Smoothie bottles!
Last year our wonderful knitters knitted 4,400 little bobble hats and raised over £1,100 for us
When the time comes, you will be able to download beginners, intermediate and advanced patterns for the Big Knit.
Christmas Knitting – please knit small Christmas novelties, such as Christmas puddings or stockings for us, fill with chocolates and send to us to sell
We have patterns for all of the above, please contact the Fundraising Team on 01403 751304 to have some sent to you.
With four chances a year of winning a cash prize of up to £150, odds far better than the National Lottery and a chance to help a local charity at the same time – why wouldn’t you join!
You can raise funds while shopping at no extra cost to you
Each year we have a wide selection of Christmas cards and other seasonal items on display and for sale at Lavinia House, Horsham Museum and our Christmas Fayre. Your purchases help our funds.
