For anyone keen on knitting, the Big Knit is a fantastic and unique way to directly help older people during winter. As part of our long standing partnership with innocent, we're appealing to YOU for small knitted hats to be produced.

These hats will be in retailers by innocent on top of their smoothie bottles from November 2017 and for each one produced they will donate 25p.

This year YOU proved to be amazing and we beat our target of 3,000 hats by an extra 678 raising a fantastic £919.50 to be used specifically to fund our Information and Advice Service throughout the winter months.

Download your free knitting patterns below and return your knitted hats to Age UK Southampton, Freemantle Community Centre, Randolph Street, Shirley, Southampton, SO15 3HE  as these will be put towards 2018's next target - to be confirmed.
