This isn't my usual sorta post, but when two of my fave brands collaborate for a great cause, I want to do everything I can to tell everyone. If writing a quick post helps raise even £5 more for Age UK, it'll have been well worth it :)
You all know about the annual Innocent #BigKnit, right? I'll keep the description brief for anyone that's not familiar. Innocent ask people to donate hand knitted miniature hats to sit on all of their smoothie bottles in the run up to Christmas. Every time they sell a bottle wearing a little hat when the shelves are stocked in February, they donate 25p from the sale to Age UK - a fantastic charity that supports vulnerable older people.
They've been doing this for 12 years.
Now, it's not the first time I've mentioned my adoration for Oliver Bonas to you. Their homeware is on my radar every time I have a home decor project, and I've blogged about their stuff a fair bit in the past. When I heard they were collaborating with Innocent on their annual #BigKnit campaign, I fell in love with the brand even more (didn't think it was possible, things are about to get weird).
Oliver Bonas are now stocking regular head size replicas of the #BigKnit bottle toppers in their stores, and for every hat they sell, £5 is being donated to Age UK.
So next time you find yourself wandering around town (or having a browse online) treat yourself or a friend to a new Oliver Bonas woolie hat for the colder months ahead, and rest assured you're helping Age UK help those having difficulties in their later lives.
There are 6 hand-knitted hats in the OB range inspired by some of the best little big knit hats over the last 12 years Innocent Smoothies have run this campaign, including some lovely designs for the littluns (A £3 donation to Age UK for each of those sold).
