This list was started to provide an alternative to the hats for plastic bottles campaign that Innocent (owned by Coca Cola) spend a lot of money every year promoting. So if you do want to use your skills to make then I hope you’ll find a charity here you’d love to support.
Age UK receive money from Coca Cola for the hats and each branch has a target of hats which they have to meet to get any money. Support your local branch – it’s a stand alone charity and isn’t funded by the national charity.
I’ll keep adding to this list as new suggestions are made – so please let me know if there’s a charity I should add or anyone who should be removed.
Castleford Police (knitted buddy scheme) – email castlefordATwestyorkshireDOTpnnDOTpoliceDOTuk
There have also been suggestions of knitting far cancer charities, local hospice, local hospitals, locals vets and zoos.
