We are hosting a series of special knitting parties at our Sunday Knitternoon to support The Big Knit campaign for Age UK! The Big Knit started in 2003 as a collaboration with Innocent Drinks. People everywhere knit tiny hats and Innocent put them on their smoothies. For every hat-wearing smoothie sold, Innocent donate 25p to Age UK. The campaign has raised £2.5m for the charity to date!
We love this idea as much as we love playing with yarn, so we're super excited to get involved and partner with wonderful local knitting companies to support this fundraiser! At each of these events you can drop in to knit a hat and if you're a beginner, we'll show you how! Yarn will be provided by our lovely yarn partners.
Here are the events we have planned:
Sunday, 9 June, 2pm - 4pm with Stitch & Story
Sunday, 23 June, 2pm - 4pm with Knit the Bed
Sunday, 30 June, 2pm - 4pm with Erika Knight
