Get knitting to raise
money for Age Concern
Needles at the ready.
innocent drinks are running their Big Knit campaign again this year to help
raise money for Age Concern to keep older people warm over the winter. They're
looking for knitters to knit lots of little hats for their smoothie bottles, for
each one sold they and Sainsbury's will give 50p to Age Concern. Last year over
400,000 hat were knitted raising £200,000 for Age Concern and this year they're
aiming for ½ a million hats!
That may sound like a
tall order but with a Big Knit blog and fantastic new hat patterns for you to
try each week there is plenty of inspiration. There will be competitions in
Simply Knitting and Let’s Knit out in the middle of September and Knitting
magazine is showcasing hat patterns from the well-known hand knit
their issue out at the beginning of October.
