Knit a tiny hat for Age UK


What is the Big Knit? 

The Big Knit is back! This year, Innocent Smoothies are looking to make 2017 their biggest Big Knit ever. 

Fancy knitting some little hats and helping us raise money for Age UK? It's fun, it's easy and it's for a great cause. Every time Innocent Smoothies sell a little bottle wearing a hat, they donate 25p to Age UK to help keep older people warm and well over winter.

The colder months can be tough for a lot of people – as many as 25,000 older people's lives are at risk because of the cold. But we can help. Thanks to knitters like you, we've raised over £1.9m so far. The money raised will go towards the cost of things like blankets, hot water bottles, hot meals and social gatherings.
