The Big Knit

These little hats can 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!

The Big Knit has already started and will run through to July 2019 but don't wait til then to get them to us!  We welcome hats at any time!

How to get your hats to us

Your little hats need to reach:

         Age UK Somerset, Ash House, Cook Way, Taunton, Somerset, TA2 6BJ

To avoid you having to pay postage to send them in to us, we are trying to organise a number of Big Knit Little Hat Drop Off Points to cover the local area so you can drop your hats off instead of having to post them in.

Please see the map below.  We will be adding new Drop Off points all the time!
