For the past few years Innocent have launched their annual Big Knit Campaign where people are asked to knit little woolly hats for Innocent bottles. In turn, for every bottle sold with a hat, 50p will be donated to Age Concern. This year £250,000 has been donated. It’s an innovative fundraising idea from a quirky company.
I’ve been a bit late getting some bottles as they were came out at the beginning of November, but I eventually managed to pick up a few in Sainsbury’s. The couple of hats we collected from last years bottles reside on our Bride & Groom Wedding cake topper. Next year I’m planning to send our collection of hats back so they can be recycled. There have been some amazing hats knitted and next year should be more organised and pick up a funky hat.
