Meet the Knitters: Ella

Last week, a lovely lady called Lesley got in touch to champion her friend Ella, who has been tirelessly knitting hats for the Big Knit all year.


Ella is 78 years old and, when she’s not knitting (or pom pom making), she's working at her local community centre cooking lunches with Age UK.

Ella has managed to tally up a stonking 1000 hats this year (to add to the 500 she made for us last year) and, after sending them in, is now helping her friend bulk up her donation too.


Thank you for the absolutely amazing effort Ella – you’re a true knitting champion and your hard work will make a massive difference to this year's campaign. We couldn't do it without you.
