Residents at RMBI Care Co. Home Cornwallis Court in Bury St Edmunds are supporting Age UK by knitting dozens of tiny hats. Their efforts are part of Age UK’s The Big Knit which helps raise vital funds to support local and national winter projects that involve keeping older people warm through befriending visits, emergency and cold weather support, warm meals and other vital services. Using scrap wool, residents had great fun experimenting with some wild and wacky hat patterns such as The Shark, The Crafty Fox and The Cherry.
