I would like to tell you about White Stuff and their National Wear a Tea Cosy on Your Head Day. Please read..it’s for charity!
This year, White Stuff is preparing for the third annual National Wear a Tea Cosy on Your Head Day (NWATCOYHD) on Thursday 27th September. The event will be a day of fundraising and exciting activities with White Stuff staff and customers asked to look daft for a day and don a tea cosy for charity.
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. Customers can get involved by donning a cosy and taking a photo to raise awareness for NWATCOYHD. They can do this by tweeting their 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.
I have been sent a tea cosy to wear. However I am on my way to Essex that day and I don’t think I have the confidence to wear it. I will wear it indoors and if I see anyone else wearing a tea cosy! I will try and be a bit more braver on the day!
