The Big Knit
If you’re a keen knitter then your skills are needed in this year’s Big Knit. Knit & Natter groups at libraries across Essex will be knitting mini woolly hats in aid of Age UK Essex. Teaming with drinks brand Innocent, each hat donated will be placed on a bottle of Innocent Smoothie and sold, with 25p going to the charity. The money raised through the national campaign will go towards providing blankets, hot water bottles, hot meals, support and social gatherings for elderly residents throughout the long winter months.
The deadline for contributions to the 2016/2017 campaign is 20 January, with the aim of beating last year total of 7000 hats. For more information on where to donate your mini hats call 01245 207065 or visit the Age UK website.
