1. The Big Knit
Grab your knitting needles and help raise money for Age UK. Starting in 2003, the team behind Innocent asked people to knit little woolly hats, which were placed on smoothies. An astonishing 7.5 million hats have been knitted and they’ve raised nearly £2.5 million for Age UK. It couldn’t be easier to take part, simply head to the page of patterns and decide which one you’d like to make. All hats need to be with Innocent by July and you can either post your hats or pop them into your local Age UK.
