Big Knit project will have you in stitches
LANCASHIRE has been knitting up a storm for the past few months to hit the two million miniature hat target for Big Knit 2017.
The event, organised by Age UK and innocent, is asking knitters to create woollen hats to fit innocent smoothie bottles. Age UK will then receive 25p for every be-hatted smoothie sold which will help the charity’s vital work supporting older people across the country.
Hats need to be sent to Age UK by July 31.
Stephanie Tufft, chief officer of Age UK Lancashire said: “We’re overwhelmed with how much support this year’s Big Knit has received – the hats are getting more and more impressive and they are coming in thick and fast which is great.”
