Join us this March and help to fight loneliness in Teesside.

Calling all Knitters!

The innocent Big Knit is back and this year Age UK Teesside have a target of 2,000 little hats to top the innocent smoothie bottles and raise money for older people in winter. We can supply wool for those who need it and you can find knitting patterns in our monthly newsletter or at official Big Knit website.
