The Big Knit 2016/2017 is here…..

We are really pleased that Age UK and Innocent are teaming up again for the 13th year of the Big Knit partnership and would like it to be the biggest ever!

The Big Knit 2015 was a huge success for Age UK Essex with so many keen knitters and new knitting groups getting involved. We would like to continue this for 2016/2017 but need the help of our loyal knitters to achieve our target. Can you help??

Taking part in the Big Knit means that Age UK Essex receives vital funds so we can carry on offering our services in Essex. We have had some fantastic knitted hats already but there is plenty of room for more - in fact the more the merrier.

The deadline for contributions to the 2016/2017 campaign is 20th January 2017 so there is plenty of time for knitting! If you know anyone else who would be happy to pick up their knitting needles and spare some time knitting for us we would love to hear from them so please encourage them to get in touch.

"We always enjoy being involved with the Big Knit and we have had a great response already with knitting arriving regularly. The knitting phase is slightly longer this year giving local people and knitting groups plenty of time to get those knitting needles to work. The support from the people of Essex is always fantastic and we hope it will continue for the Big Knit 2016/2017 so we can reach our target."

Jean Robinson, Head of Income Generation at Age UK Essex.

Happy Knitting!
