National wear a tea cosy on your head day

It seems the perfect combination, fabulous fashion, being silly, raising money for charity and tea! Of course I leapt at the chance of being involved!

This is the third year of  White Stuff’s (www.whitestuff.com) annual national wear a tea cosy on you head day on Thursday 27th September.  There 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.

We will be attending our local White stuff in Nottingham, and getting involved there.There is a tea party and lots of other great things to raise money.

If you want to get involved to raise money and awareness for White Stuff’s charities you can buy one of the £3 tea cosies sold in store, or online HERE. Also you can attend one of White Stuff’s shop tea parties or knit your own tea cosies (with the downloadable Grannies Inc. pattern).

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.

  7. Love your photos! My youngest (17mths) wouldn’t keep still long enough or keep the tea cosy on longer than 3 seconds to get a pic and I meant to have my photo taken but somehow managed to avoid it. Will try harder next year. My oldest had fun posing though. Did your tea cosy smell lovely too???
