A group of keen Daventry knitters which includes eight DDH tenants –Rathia Nettleton, Lorraine Dorgen, Evelyn Edwards, Peggy Smith, Eileen Littlewood, Jean Harvey, Pat Fuller and Jeannett Midson – gathered at Warwick Court in Daventry on Tuesday, October 28 to display the 711 miniature hats they had crafted, along with a further 120 hats knitted by visitors.

The hats will adorn the lids of thousands of Innocent Smoothie bottles that will be sold across the country in February as part of the Innocent Big Knit campaign, a joint initiative between Age UK and Innocent Drinks.

From each bottle sold, Innocent will donate 25 pence to Age UK’Spread the Warmth campaign.
