Flu Prevention

 

It's more important than ever to protect yourself against flu.  If you're 65 or older, or have a long term, or chronic health condition, it's vital that you have your seasonal flu vaccinaton. Flu is not simply a bad cold - and it can increase your risk of more serious illness.  Even if the weather's mild, flu is in season throughout winter.

The Big Knit - raise money for Age UK Wolverhampton by getting involved

What's the Big Knit all about?

The Big Knit is a joint campaign between Age UK and Innocent drinks to help vulnerable older people. It started in 2003 and we are again asking knitters if they will help us with the mini bobble hat production.  Knitting patterns can be downloaded below.

Knitters of all ages and abilities can get involved in this exciting campaign to make lots of tiny hats for the top of innocent smoothie bottles. For every be-hatted bottle sold, 25p will go straight to Age UK Wolverhampton. This will allow us to provide help and support for local older people.
