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 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, the twitter account their photo (mentioning #teacosy) or posting it on : 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.
Lots of celebrities are 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.
Come on, wear a tea cosy on your head on the Thursday 27th September, and let’s raise some money for charity!
The dress I am wearing in this post, was kindly given to me by White Stuff, and is from there current collection, I love it. I must admit I’m quite partial to the tea cosy too. 😉
