Calling all knitters!
Innocent started putting little hats on their smoothies back in 2003, donating 25p to Age UK for every behatted bottle sold.
These woolly masterpieces are knitted and crocheted by thousands of legendary volunteers. They sent a whopping 1.5 million little hats for last year’s Big Knit, bringing their total raised for Age UK over the years to just under £3 million. Jaw dropping stuff?
Hats will be back on bottles in 2022, but you don’t need to wait to get started, as Age UK are taking deliveries of your woolly wonders as we speak. Anyone can get involved, whether you’re a pro or a novice.
All the knitting patterns can be found here: https://www.thebigknit.co.uk/knitting-patterns
If you register to take part via the Community Exchange you can bank the hours you have spent knitting and use them to receive some volunteer help for yourself in return, or you can choose to donate your hours to the Community Pot for others to benefit from.
