The Big Knit 2018
Published on 10 October 2018 02:41 PM
The big knit is back...
So grab your needles and your brightest yarn and get knitting for Age UK Wakefield District, to help us be there for older people who have no one else to turn to.
What is the Big Knit?
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.
This year, Age UK Wakefield District has the target of 17,968 hats
How to get involved
We’d 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.
Download the knitting patterns below, make yourself a nice cup of tea, find a comfy chair and knit away!
Hand in your hats
Once your little knitted creations are ready, drop them off or post them to:
Age UK Wakefield District
7 Bank Street
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!
Watch our video to see just how much this means to people like Jean and John:
Volunteering is a fulfilling, satisfying and creative experience. You can help to meet the needs of older people by volunteering to support the services we provide.
