About the Volunteer Opportunity

Every year AgeNI ask people to knit tiny woollen hats, and each one gets placed on an innocent smoothie bottle. For every smoothie sold, they receive 25p, and that money helps them fight loneliness among older people.

With everyone having to stay home this may be a good time to get the knitting/crochet needles out and start knitting the little woolly hats again, assuming you have a supply of wool at home.

Patterns can be downloaded from their website below or just create your own.
