Could you take part in The Big Knit?

The Big Knit 2021 / 2022

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 which will help us fund projects for local older people.

We have a target of 22,000 hats this year and the deadline for them to reach us has been extended to 30th June 2022!

We'd love it if you could help us meet the target.  Any hats can be sent into our office, or dropped off at one of the kind locations that have agreed to be Big Knit Drop Off Points.

For more information and patterns please get in touch.
