Pensioners in Dulwich have knitted 250 hats to raise funds for Age UK.

The hats, made by members of the Dulwich Almshouse Charity’s knitting group, are used on Innocent smoothie bottles.

For every hat, Innocent donates 25p to its charity partner Age UK.

Since the project started in 2003, 7.5 million hats have been knitted across the country raising nearly £2.5 million for the charity.
