The Big Knit

Little knitted hats by Joanne Haywood
Every year innocent smoothies run a campaign to get folks up and down the land to knit little hats for smoothie bottles. For every behatted bottle sold, Sainsbury’s and innocent give 50p per bottle sold to Age Concern to help keep older people warm in winter. The money raised from The Big Knit goes towards providing hot meals, blankets and advice to older people on how to keep their homes warm.
Last year they raised over £200,000 for Age Concern and this year they are looking to raise lots more.
Check out their website for knitting patterns, resource packs and delivery forms.
You have until 17th October to get all your little hats over to Fruit Towers… So get knitting!
My knitting needles have been feeling a bit redundant so far this year - thankyou Joanne for the information.
