Join the Big Knitathon 2018

Published on 25 January 2018 08:05 PM

Join us at the Age UK Big Knitathon on 3 March 2018 and reduce loneliness in Northumberland and Gateshead.

A little woolly hat helps fight loneliness

The hats you see on smoothies in the shops raise money for activities at Age UK. For every hat that you knit, Innocent donates 25p to our organisations, which we will be using to reduce loneliness in Gateshead and Northumberland

How your knitting will help:

Ready. Set. Knit!

The Big Knitathon is the official launch in our quest to collect as many wooly hats as possible in 2018 and promises to be a fun day for all of the family.

What's on:
- Hat Knitting
- Learn to Knit
- Colouring competitions for children

If you’re an experienced knitter and you would like to bring your own wool and needles, that would be much appreciated. We will also have some available on the day.
