The Rotary Big Knit 2019 will be held on Saturday the 16th March. This will be our 10th anniversary, with your help the Big Knit has so far raised a total of £45,000 for local charities. This year, the four main charities to be supported will be: Demelza House, East Kent Mencap, East Kent Strokes and QEQM Hospital Dementia Appeal. Once again it will be held at the Holy Trinity Church in Cliftonville.

This is a sponsored fundraising and attracts people of all ages, knitting and socialising.

The youngest knitter to take part

Sponsors pledge money for every inch knitted in one and half hours or a fixed sum. If you are interested in taking part, contact us for a sponsorship form or click on the link below and print one out. Better still organise a table of friends to join you. If you cannot attend the event itself, join those who take part by knitting at home.

The money raised is only used to support local charities.

Some groups of knitters groups take part every year. The knitted pieces do not get wasted. Instead they are used to make into colourful blankets which are also donated to charity.
