Let's Get Knitting!
Have you got a passion for knitting or want to start stitching? You could help raise money for Age UK Oxfordshire and get involved in our annual Big Knit campaign.
Our partners at innocent will place your woolly creations on their smoothie bottles. For each cosy smoothie sold we at Age UK Oxfordshire will receive 25p.
The Big Knit has been running since 2003 and has raised thousands of pounds for Age Uk’s all over the country. This year alone our knitters created over 15,000 hats and raised a spectacular £21,930 for Age UK Oxfordshire. All this money has been put into helping local older people in Oxfordshire. Who would expect that tiny, knitted hats would make such a difference?
We are excited to let you know that the Big Knit has been extended to early 2022. This means you can still get involved and continue creating.
We were delighted to submit your recent knitted hats but we are excited to receive more from you. You can send us your hats to our office: 9 Napier Ct, Barton Ln, Abingdon OX14 3YT. You can also drop them in yourself and say hi!
If you need some inspiration check out some of our knit patterns.They have a range of patterns for beginners and for experienced knitters. Additionally you can check out our YouTube channel where Rosemary teaches us how to knit a hat.
Share, Knit, Share Again.
We love to see how your woolly creations are getting along so share them with us via our social media platforms. Likewise if you are part of any knitting groups why not try one of our patterns or create your own. We would love to hear your 'Big Knit' story.
