Big Knit

Published on 01 June 2018 08:53 AM

The Big Knit is back and it's going to be the biggest one ever.

This year we are aiming for 2 million hats and we can’t do this without you. And for every behatted smoothie that gets sold, Age UK will receive 25p to help older people during the cold winter months.

It's easy to get started. You’ll also be part of the huge knitting team helping us to reach such a monumental target for a great cause.

1. Be prepared.

Get yourself some needles, wool and your favourite chair (train carriages and cafes also work well) and get knitting! 

2. Send us your hats

Package up your lovely hats and get them to us. The smoothie bottles don’t go on sale until winter you can keep sending hats in throughout all year round to help reach the bumper target.

Please send your hats to us at:

The Big Knit, 

Freemantle & Shirley Community Centre, Randolph Street, Southampton SO15 3HE

3. Sharing is caring

Show everyone how great your hats are by posting pictures of them online using #BigKnit

What happens next?

Look out for the hats on smoothie bottles in shops in October 2018.
