White Stuff : National Wear a tea cosy on your head day !

Its that time of year again The White Stuff’s Annual national wear a tea cosy on you head day on Thursday 27th September.  The event will be a day of fundraising and exciting activities with White Stuff staff and customers sponsored to look daft for a day and don a tea cosy for charity.

And guess what ..... ?

Yes last year my cat won it hurrah! `honest he did and the runner up was a chicken so anything goes !

Wear a tea cosy on your head day.

Last year White Stuff raised over £30k for charity with lots of people getting involved and this year we’re aiming to make NWATCOYHD even bigger and better than before. There are lots of ways people can get involved to raise money and awareness for White Stuff’s charities including; buying one of the £3 tea cosies sold in store, attending one of White Stuff’s shop tea parties or knitting their own tea cosies (with our downloadable Grannies Inc. pattern).

Each of the White Stuff shops will be hosting a tea party on the day which will include fun activities (for kids too) and shop staff will be serving tea and cake. You  can get involved by donning a cosy and taking a photo to raise awareness for NWATCOYHD. You can do this by tweeting your ( or yours families photo) to White Stuffs twitter account  photo (mentioning #teacosy) or posting it on the White Stuff Facebook page

White Stuff’s 85 local charities will be getting involved in fundraising too. Each of the White Stuff shops supports its own local charity, helping disadvantaged children and young people in the UK and all money raised on the day will go directly to these charities. The charities are supported by the White Stuff Foundation, which was set up in 2010.

We have lots of celebrities supporting the campaign, including Jessica Wright from TOWIE, Alexandra Shulman, Jacquetta Wheeler, Jamie Oliver, Harry Hill, June Brown, KT Tunstall, Henry Holland, Jo Wood, John Rocha, Jimmy Doherty, Valentine Warner, Newton Faulkner and Ben Shephard.

So go on join it myself and Rollie had so much fun ( Rollie is the sort of cat that smiles from within honest)
