My all time FAVOURITE clothes shop 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.e. 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 their 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.
Do try and get to your local store if you can. I’m sure you could do with a new teacosy and you can be the little tea party will be fabulous! Our local shop has a kids cinema and garden shed dressing rooms (I kid you not!)
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.
Here is my wonderful friend Jo( who often hosts the most wonderful charity coffee and cake morning herself) rocking the teacosy look
Much as she loved it I insisted I got to have a go too….
