Age UK Lindsey is calling on nimble-fingered knitters to whip out their wool and needles and create little woolly hats for Age UK and innocent’s Big Knit 2013.
Now in its tenth year, The Big Knit raises vital funds for local and national projects to help keep older people warmer in winter. Knitters are asked to make small woolly hats which will adorn innocent smoothie bottles in stores from November 21. For each be-hatted smoothie sold, innocent will give 25p to Age UK’s Spread the Warmth campaign. Age UK Lindsey has been tasked with knitting 6,000 hats.
Knitters can pick up a knitting free pattern from the Age UK Lindsey shop in Louth.
Philippa Haresign, Chief Officer at Age UK Lindsey, said: “Winter can be a really difficult time of year for many older people.”
