The Big Knit

These little hats make a big difference! 

Pick up your needles and join in The Big Knit and for every little hat we send to innocent to put on their drinks bottles, they will donate 25p to help us banish local loneliness!

Age UK and Innocent Drinks have announced the Big Knit campaign will be returning for 2020!

We'll make an announcement about the deadline soon but in the meantime get knitting but hold on to your hats!
