Magee Gammon’s Big Knit
Eugene O’Connor, Chief Officer with Age UK Folkestone visited our offices to collect our contributions.
“What a fantastic effort by the staff at Magee Gammon, making all the little woollen hats to adorn the drinks manufacturer ‘Innocent’ bottles, doing so in their own time and at their own expense. The ‘Big Knit” Partnership between ‘Innocent’ and Age UK is now in its tenth year and its success in providing local age UK’s like ours with 25p for each hat knitted, goes a long way to helping us provide valuable services to older people in our local communities.
It is particularly important as the winter months set in that we all make an effort to help out older people who often now have to choose between buying food or paying for heating!
And as if on cue, the weather on the day we all met up for the photocall, was the first major storm of the winter!”
