Age Scotland’s annual Big Knit campaign has just come to a close. The campaign, in partnership with AgeUK, raises awareness of keeping older people warm over winter. Knitters have sent in woolly knitted hats to don the bottle tops of Innocent smoothies that are sold in Boots and Sainsbury’s during November.
The campaign has been a fantastic way to fundraise, as The Big Knit is creative, loads of fun and each woolly hat knitted and submitted to us raises 25p for the charity.
In total, Age Scotland received 40,000 hats for the campaign! So a great big THANK YOU to all the contributors this year.
We got some amazing entries from individuals and groups all across Scotland. We even received 23 knitted hats from 10 year old Rosie in Peebles! Have a look below to see some of the brilliant designs.
We have loads more designs that you can see on our Flickr set.
The woolly-hatted Innocent smoothies will be in Sainsbury’s from 2 – 29 November, 2011. And if you’re a Boots shopper, pick up a smoothie from 9 – 22 November, 2011.
