Support Woolly Hat Day 2018

Find out how you can wear a hat and help homelessness!

For almost 50 years St Mungo’s has been helping people who are sleeping rough, in hostels and at risk of homelessness and on Friday 26th January, the charity will be hosting the eighth Woolly Hat Day.

“The campaign was launched to encourage the public to put their heads together to help end homelessness,” explains Beth Norden, Community and Events Manager at St Mungo’s. “The winter months are extremely cold, with temperatures continually declining, woolly hats are a good reminder of how cold it is outside in the winter. It is a fun way to get involved in an extremely important cause. We want people to think about rough sleepers and what it means to be homeless, especially during the colder months. We are asking people to put on their favourite hat, take a hat selfie and donate to St Mungo’s to help change someone’s life.”

You can take part in Woolly Hat day individually or get involved at your office, school or community group. There’s even a special hat cupcake recipe to use at bake sales or parties. Visit the website for more fundraising ideas and great resources to help your day go with a swing.

“The money raised will make a real difference to St Mungo’s services,” says Beth. “Our clients are at the heart of everything we do, so money raised will help them get off the streets and support them through their recovery. We want everyone to have a place to call home and fulfil their hopes and ambitions. We believe that people can and do recover from homelessness.”

On Woolly Hat Day, Friday 26th January, the St Mungo’s team will be at Westfield in Stratford, London, encouraging people to take hat selfies. These can be uploaded with #WHDWestfield and the image will automatically be uploaded to a billboard!
