The Cause - over the years

Over the past 12 years, with all your help, The Big Knit has raised thousands of pounds for very worthwhile causes...

2007- 2012 Shelter Scotland

We enjoyed working with the team from Shelter Scotland for several years and still keep in touch with the great work done by this housing and homelessness charity. If you'd like to find out more visit their website

2013 - 2015 Guide Dogs, Scotland

We have loved our three years of working with Rebeca, Heather and the Guide Dogs, Scotland team. Raising the funds to Name A Puppy twice over! We have loved being a part of the growth and training of "Amber" and "Dolly" and hope they will both come and vist our festival in the future.

Guide Dogs, Scotland is committed to providing people who are blind and partially sighted with the support required to enable them to enjoy freedom of movement and independence in their everyday lives. Please visit their website to find out how the work they do makes a difference.

2016, 2018, 2019, 2020 & 2021 The Cyrenians

These are the years for raising some funds for one of our very favourite causes, The Cyrenians, who through their many really 'hands on' initiatives are supporting people excluded from family, home, work or community on their life journey. Find out more about the great work they do
