Big Knit project will have you in stitches

Ormskirk Advertiser - - Advertiser Farming -

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.”
