THANK YOU to Innocent Smoothies and all of our knitters that made our 2018/19 Big Knit campaign a huge sucess.

The total across all of the local Age UKs was over 1.5, hats resulting in fundraising of £375,000 

Keep posted for information on the 2020 #BigKnit and in the meantime - Keep Knitting :) 


What is the Big Knit?

The Big Knit is the campaign that Age UK runs in partnership with innocent drinks where we ask you to knit little woolly hats which then go on to their smoothies. For every smoothie sold, Age UK receives 25p.

This year, Age UK Lincoln & South Lincolnshire has a target of 10,000 hats.

How to get involved

We’d love you to knit lots of lovely little hats for this year’s Big Knit and whether you’re a knitting novice or a purling pro, it couldn’t be easier.

Download the knitting patterns below, make yourself a nice cup of tea, find a comfy chair and knit away!

Hand in your hats

Once your little knitted creations are ready, drop them off or post them to:

36 Park Street, Lincoln LN1 1UQ or Chantry House, or 3 Lincoln Lane, Boston PE21 8RU

How does the Big Knit help?

The money we raise from the Big Knit helps us be there for older people who have no one else to turn to – so those little hats really do make a big difference!
