I was wondering if any of your groups would be interested in supporting their local Age UK by knitting little hats to sit atop innocent drinks?!
It is a joint scheme raising valuable funds for Age UK’s Spread the Warmth Campaign, whereby members of the public knit little hats (see photo attached) and for every be-hatted bottle sold (during November), innocent donate 25p to Age UK. You can find out more at http://thebigknit.co.uk/
Here in Calderdale and Kirklees we are targeted with knitting 10,000 hats by the end of September. We are almost half way but still need 5000+ hats. I’m not sure of the targets of other WY Age UK’s.
I have attached our ‘knitting pack’ which includes some patterns and where to send completed hats etc. Although some members form Fixby WI helped out last year and produced some very creative hats!
If you have any queries, please get in touch.
