The Big Knit is our partnership with innocent drinks.  Each one of these little hats makes a big difference!

What is the Big Knit?

The Big Knit is the campaign that Age UK Surrey runs in partnership with innocent drinks where we ask you to knit little woolly hats which then go onto the top of the innocent smoothie drinks. For every smoothie with a hat sold, Age UK Surrey receives 25p, so we really need your help to produce lots of colourful and fun hats!

Last year, Age UK Surrey smashed its target of 7,000 hats. A huge thank you to all those who sent us knitted hats - please keep going! We have an even bigger target of 20,000 hats for the coming year so please keep knitting for us. It would be an amazing achievement if you can help us reach our target and raise £5,000 for us. 

Please send your hats to us at any time. The final deadline for this year is 20th September 2021

How to get involved

So if you find yourself at a loose end, we would love you to knit lots of lovely little hats for this year’s Big Knit.  And whether you’re a knitting novice or a purling pro, it couldn’t be easier.

How does the Big Knit help?

The money we raise from the Big Knit helps us be there for older people who have no one else to turn to – so those little hats really do make a big difference!
