knit one, help loads

join in with the big knit - get knitting and show your support

Although we haven’t set a deadline for the little hats just yet, feel free to send yours in whenever they’re done and we’ll keep them safe until they’re ready for action. Be sure to add your name and address so we know where to send a proper thank you

Fancy knitting some little hats and helping us raise money for Age Action? It's fun, it's easy and it's for a great cause. Every time we sell a little bottle wearing a hat, we donate 30c to Age Action to help keep older people warm and well over winter. The colder months can be tough for a lot of people – as many as 25,000 older people's lives are at risk because of the cold. But we can help. Thanks to knitters like you, we've raised over €150,000 so far.

You can find knitting patterns here, some inspiring hats here and a handy 'how to' video just here...

Every hat is important, so even if you've only got time to knit one or two, we'd still massively appreciate it.

Put all your hats in an envelope along with a note clearly stating:

- how many you've knitted

- the date

- your name and address

Then send them all through to:

Happy knitting.
