the big knit…keeping older people in Ireland warm this winter
I’m slightly behind the times in reporting the Ireland’s participation in The Big Knit.
The Big Knit is a campaign where innocent, Topaz and the charity Age Action join forces to
help older people in Ireland keep warm during the cold winter months. We will put little woolly
hats on our smoothie bottles in Topaz stores from 5th November 2008, and for every hat-
wearing smoothie sold, innocent and Topaz give €1 to Age Action.
The money raised from The Big Knit will go towards providing support to older people,
including care and repair programmes and advice on how to keep houses warm during the
We need as many as possible little woolly hats sent to the address below before the 22nd of
October (deadline day for hats).
If you’re holding a knit-in or have any stories about your hats please do let Big Knit Jules
know at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the banana phone on 01 879 6600, she
always loves a bit of wool related gossip.
When you’re done, please send your hats, along with your name, address, phone
number/email address and number of hats to:
