    It’s the return of the Big Knit campaign - and Age UK Lancashire is calling on Lancashire to join in and get knitting!

    Whether a knitting ninja, purling pro, crochet connoisseur or just keen to have a go it’s time to get wild about wool and join the Big Knit. Now in its 15th year, the campaign is recruiting knitters to help create an impressive 1.6 million hats to adorn innocent smoothie bottles. For each be-hatted smoothie sold*, Age UK receives 25p, and that money helps the Charity support older people who are facing later life alone.

    Teri Stephenson, Chief Officer of Age UK Lancashire said: ““We need the people of Lancashire to join us and help knit as many miniature hats as possible this winter to help us hit our 5000 target. It’s such a fun campaign to get behind and it does so much to help older people in our area.

    “The money raised will make a big difference to the lives of older people by funding our hugely important services. These services, including Information and Advice, give local older people the chance to access financial support, find the help they need and provide opportunities to socialise and keep active”.

    Last year alone, more than one million hats were lovingly created, with designs including the hugely popular unicorn, grizzly bear, fluffy sheep and desert island.

    Bara Amouyal, innocent drinks, said: “The Big Knit has had such an incredible amount of support over the past 15 years and we are hugely grateful – we love seeing what miniature creations the nation can come up with! Through the Big Knit campaign, we want to do everything we can to make a difference to the lives of older people.”

    For more information on The Big Knit contact Age UK Lancashire on 0300 303 1234 or visit the news section at www.ageuklancs.org.uk - please send completed hats to Age UK Lancashire at Suite 22, Railway House, Railway Road, Chorley, PR6 0HW, or your nearest Age UK Lancashire shop, office or centre.
