little hats, big difference

these little hats change lives

The Big Knit started back in 2003 with an idea. We asked people to knit little woolly hats, then we put those hats on our smoothies.

For each one sold, we gave 25p to Age UK.

Since then, you incredible bunch have knitted an astonishing 7.5 million hats. Together we've raised nearly £2.5 million for Age UK.*

If you’ve ever bought a smoothie or knitted a hat, thank you for being part of the Big Knit.

Hats off to you.


*The eagle-eyed among you might have spotted that these numbers don't quite add up. Don't worry, we're not trying to pull the wool over your eyes - we've included other donations we've given to Age UK along the way.
