Are you a knitter, or do you know one?


Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland is once again calling for all knitters to join in The Big Knit this year to raise much-needed funds to help keep local older people warm and healthy this coming winter.

Thanks to our fantastic band of knitters, last year we received an incredible 47,000 little hats and need your help to match this challenging total which will assist our winter warmth campaign 2016. Innocent drinks will donate 25p for each little hat which will adorn the smoothie bottles sold in supermarkets early in 2017.

Knitters can get the simple knitting patterns online at: or by calling the Business Development Manager on: 0116 2237344.

Hats can be dropped off at any of our shops or Resource Centres (or sent direct) in time to be at - Age UK Leicester Shire & Rutland, Lansdowne House, 113 Princess Road East, Leicester, LE1 7LA - by the end of October.
