The Big Knit Campaign

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 Maidstone has the target of 2,000 hats. Read our article to find knitting patterns and more information!

Send Us Your Used Stamps

You can raise money for us simply by cutting around the used stamps that come on your posts. Simply cut around the stamp, leaving no more than a 1cm border. Stamps can then be dropped off at our office at 7 Mill Street, Maidstone, ME15 6XW.
