We are pleased to announce the Big Knit is back for 2018 and I am contacting you to see if you know of any keen knitters that may be able to help us  reach our target of 25,000 hats.  These hats  will raise an amazing £6,250 for vital services & support for older people in Suffolk.  We have some great new patterns this year, and are looking forward to seeing the creations as they arrive throughout the campaign.

I have attached copies of the knitting patterns and a poster.  Patterns  can also be downloaded  from our website  The big knit 2018

Don’t forget – our retail outlets across the county also stock a great range of colourful yarns to help you with your knitting – details of all our shops can be found on our website. 

Once you have some hats ready to for us, you can either post them to our Head Office at the address on the attached poster, or drop them into your nearest shop.  You can also give us a call on 01473 298683 and we can arrange to collect from you.  All hats will need to be with us by the 31st July 2019 and  will start to appear on the Innocent Smoothie bottles from October 2019.

Please do not hesitate to contact myself should you have any questions and we hope you have some knitters who may enjoy taking part in this year’s Big Knit Campaign.

Kind regards
