Age UK Sutton is taking part in The Big Knit for the first time to raise money for vulnerable older people.

The Big Knit is an annual national event that has raised over £1.9 million in over a decade.

Age Sutton UK is aiming to produce 2000 miniature hats by July 3.

Hats will be delivered to innocent’s Fruit Towers headquarters.

Every mini-hat will raise 25p for Age UK Sutton which will contribute to local Sutton services.

You can take part by joining Age UK Sutton staff who will be hosting local ‘knit ins’ next week.

Granfers Community Centre will hold a knit and network event on Wednesday June 21 on Oakhill Road in Sutton.

Alternatively you can send finished mini- hats to the Age UK Sutton office at Unit 2, Lower Square, St. Nicholas Way, Sutton, SM1 1EA.
