The Big Knit 2020

Published on 08 June 2020 01:47 PM

The Big Knit is the campaign that Age UK runs in partnership with innocent drinks where we ask you to knit little woolly hats which then go on to their smoothies. For every smoothie sold, Age UK receives 25p.

Last year we smashed our target of knitting 25,000 hats and sent 30,700 of your creations off to Innocent.!!

This raised an incredible £7675 which will help to fund our ongoing services and support for older people in the county.

As yet we do not have details of targets or timescales for 2020, but we wanted to reassure our fantastic team of knitters and ask you to carry on knitting during the lockdown. Perhaps you would like to learn to knit as a new skill, or set yourself a new challenge? 

All we ask is that you keep hold of the hats until our offices are able to open to the public.

We love to see your creations, please share them on social media and tag us in @AgeUKSuffolk
