Day Of Bobble Day

Bobble Day is officially today (10th February) and Age UK is staging an annual fundraising event urging us all to dig out our winter woollies and dress them with fluffy Age UK bobbles, raising funds for older people who need to keep warm and well in the winter months. If that sounds too much like hard work then knitwear label Grannies (www.granniesinc.co.uk), Inc have designed this superb winter bobble hat, lovingly crafted by UK grannies in vibrant orange, yellow and pink to add to your bobble quota instantly.  Made from 100% British spun merino wool yarn this has warmed the heads of celebrities and models and a full £8 of the £35 cost will go directly to Age UK’s Spread the Warmth campaign.

Bobble Day highlights the plight of people in later life who need access to information, advice and practical help during the winter. This includes making sure older people get a warm and nutritious meal, have help keeping their homes warm and get year-round advice on keeping well.

This viciously cold weather makes us want to spread some warmth, so you can buy a bobble for £1 at Age UK shops, make a donation at www.ageuk.org.uk/bobbleday or buy a hat from Grannies, Inc. Show further support by turning your Facebook profile picture all woolly with the new Knit Me app.
