WI Meeting - November 2015

This month’s meeting of the Bozeat WI on Wednesday 11th, saw the results of the labours of many of our members.

To celebrate the WI’s centenary, we in Bozeat aimed to knit 100 hats for the “Innocent Smoothie” drinks campaign.  Each drink sold with a knitted hat generates 25p for Age UK.

With many members knitting we made over 100 at the first count, so decided to double our challenge and on the final count we had 275.

The photographs show the variety of designs, and our members displaying the hats on their fingers.

The campaign started in 2003 and by the end of 2015, over £1.7m pounds has been raised, together with the awareness of Age UK.
