This year’s innocent Big Knit was a huge success. Lovely knitters from all over Ireland knit a total of 83,632 little woolly hats. These hats sat on our smoothie bottles in shops around Ireland from January this year. A whooping 80,000 were sold which meant that €20,000 was raised for Age Action. A big big thank you to everyone who knit a little hat or bought a hat wearing smoothie.
Every Wednesday and Saturday the lovely ladies of the Age Action knitting group meet in the Age Action shop on Camden Street, Dublin, for a chat and a knit. So last Wednesday, we headed down to the shop to hand over a very big cheque and eat a very lovely cake.
Helen & Ali handed over a €20,000 cheque to Robin Webster and Eamon Timmins of Age Action.
The lovely Age Action knitters posed for a group photo.
Thanks to Ciara from The Custom Cake Company for the amazing innocent big knit cake and cupcakes.
These delicious cupcakes had edible versions of some of our favourite big knit hats.
A huge thank you to all involved. The innocent big knit wouldn’t be such a success without the lovely people who give up their time to knit and everyone who buys a hat wearing smoothie. We’re wrapping up our wool and needles for another year but keep an eye on the website for details of our next innocent big knit.
