Wool Zone’s weekly knitting group has been working hard all summer helping Age UK Leicester Shire and Rutland to meet their Big Knit target of 40,000 little hats.

The group, which meets at Wool Zone, in Northgate, Oakham, on Wednesdays has created a range of designs for the Innocent Big Knit, including some fetching and festive grey and silver hats ready for Christmas!

The hats will adorn Innocent smoothie bottles and the initiative supports Age UK by donating 25p for each bottle sold wearing a hat. Funds raised will be used to help older people through the winter months.
