Charity / Campaigns

Big Knit

Each year Age UK runs a campaign in partnership with Innocent Drinks called the Big Knit where knitters across the UK are asked to make and donate little wooly hats which Age UK arrange to go onto bottled smoothies. For every bottle sold, Age UK received 25p.

Age UK Warwickshire has a 2019 target of 2500 hats; let's see how many Warwickshire WIs can contrtibute to this total.
