Get involved with Bobble Day
There’s nothing quite like a bobble, or a pom pom or three, and that’s why we want to shout out about Bobble Day on 10th February. Bobble Day is part of Age UK‘s Spread the Warmth campaign, which aims to reach 350,000 older people to make sure they stay warm, safe and healthy this winter. Read more to see how you can get your bobble on and help…
Bobble Day has been organised by Age UK to help prevent old people from suffering in the cold weather. With funds raised, Age UK can spread the warmth, by ensuring befrienders are on hand for vulnerable elderly folk, keep homes warmer, and even get hot, nutritious meals out there where they are needed.
There are a couple of ways you can help. First off you can quite simply don your wildest woolly, be it your maddest hat or novelty jumper and donate £2 to Age UK. Get your work colleagues or school involved and you’ll really up the funds.
Or, quite simply, you can team up with Deramores to buy your yarn for Bobble Day knits. For every 100g ball of Sirdar Bonus DK yarn you purchase, Deramores will donate 50p to Age UK. Here’s a pom pom tutorial from our sister website The Making Spot to get you started.
