Montage of little hats sent to Age UK Lindsey

We need your woolpower!

The innocent Big Knit is back, and it's bigger and knittier than ever. We're calling on all knitters and crocheters to get their needles out and help us reach our target. We'll receive 25p for every little hat that you send in. This could really make a positive difference to older people in East Lindsey, West Lindsey and North Lincolnshire. All money raised will go towards our services: helping to reduce loneliness and isolation and ensuring that older people have access to free and confidential information and advice. Our target is 25,000 little knitted hats by 30th June 2022 - making a total of £6,250.

Get those needles out and start knitting!
