Join Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin to knit little hats for innocent smoothie bottles and help raise money to support local older people.
The Big Knit is a joint campaign between Age UK and innocent drinks to help vulnerable older people keep warm during the winter. The little hats that are knitted are placed on top of smoothie bottles and for every smoothie sold, Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin receives 25p.

Thanks to the kind folk at innocent drinks, the Big Knit campaign has been extended to June 2022. With this in mind, we've set a new target of 7,000 hats and we're hoping local knitters and crocheters will help us with the final push to reach the target.
Heather Osborne, Chief Executive of Age UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin said: ‘Every year we love seeing all the different designs come in, from stripy bobble hats to grizzly bears. We need everyone to join us and knit as many miniature hats as possible by 30 June 2022 to help us hit our 7,000 hat target. It’s such a fun campaign to get behind and it does so much to help older people in our area.’
