Age UK Norfolk is calling on knitters and crocheters to get their needles out to help raise urgent funds for older people most in need.

As part of Innocent drinks Big Knit campaign, people are asked to craft hats to sit on smoothie bottles. For each be-hatted smoothie sold, Age UK Norfolk will receive 25p.

Michelle Jay, fundraising and communications officer of Age UK Norfolk, said: “We need the people of Norfolk to join us and help knit as many miniature hats as possible to help us hit our 8,500 target.

“The money raised from these little hats will make a big difference to the lives of older people in our area, many of whom have been badly affected by the pandemic.”

There are six new hat designs for this year, including a rainbow, rabbit, cupcake, pom pom, fox and bird. 

The knitting and crochet patterns are available to download from www.ageuk.org.uk/bigknit or www.thebigknit.co.uk
