Age Uk Todmorden are hoping knitters will help them knit to success in this year’s The Big Knit campaign.

By knitting miniature bobble hats people can raise money to support the work of Age UK Todmorden.

The hats will decorate bottles of Innocent smoothies sold in stores later this year. The idea is to remind everyone about the problems older people can face with cold in the winter.

Catherine Rosborough of Age UK Todmorden said: “Our target for this year is 7,000 hats and we would love as many people as possible to take part. Please call in at our Burnley Road, Todmorden, offices for a pattern or to check the size of you first hat against a bottle .

“Be as creative as you like! We really enjoy looking at all the different designs.”
