The co-founder of Innocent Smoothies Richard Reed visited Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees employees to promote ‘The Big Knit.’

In the tenth year of the annual campaign Age UK and Innocent have teamed up to ask supporters to knit as many woollen hats to adorn fruit juice bottles. For each one sold, Innocent donate 25pence to Age UK.

Calderdale residents have been busy knitting to double the charity’s target of 4,500 hats to a total of 8,400 - raising £2,100 for Age UK Calderdale and Kirklees.

Todmorden’s Age UK day centre knitted over 1,000 hats for the ‘Spread the Warmth’ charity campaign.
