Wear A Christmas Hat Day

Wear A Christmas Hat Day

To those who may say ‘Christmas is cancelled’ we say, ‘bah humbug’!

It’s easy to get distracted by news of second waves, local lockdowns and social restrictions. This is serious of course, but it’s still Christmas whatever’s going on, and we’re going to celebrate in the best way we know. And that involves hats, fundraising and YOU, wherever you are!

We’re bringing the hats back, on Friday 18th December, for our first-ever Wear A Christmas Hat Day and you’re invited to join in!

Fundraising While Keeping Safe

Hands. Face. Space. This is the new normal – for the time being at least. But you can still hold your event whilst observing the government’s latest rules for social restrictions.
