White Stuff is getting ready for the second annual National Wear a Tea Cosy on Your Head Day (NWATCOYHD) on Thursday 22nd September. The event will be an exciting day of fundraising with White Stuff staff and customers sponsored to don tea cosies on their heads and much more!
Last year White Stuff raised £26k for charity, lots of people got involved (even some famous faces) and we want to make the second NWATCOYHD bigger and even better than before. There are many ways customers can join in and raise money; including knitting their own tea cosy (with our downloadable Grannies Inc pattern), sponsoring their local shop, taking part in a ‘stitch and bitch’ session or hosting their very own ‘chari-tea’ party.
On the actual day there will be fun activities in our local shops and drinks and nibbles. If shoppers arrive wearing a tea cosy they will receive a free gift from our friends at Clipper. Followers on Twitter should look out for the #NWATCOYHD and Facebookers will be asked to tag themselves wearing their tea cosies on our Facebook page. Customers can also email us pictures of themselves wearing a tea cosy with the best entry winning a £200 White Stuff voucher.
Our local charities will be getting involved in fundraising too. Each of our 78 shops supports a local charity and all monies raised on the day will go directly to this cause. The charities are supported by The White Stuff Foundation, which was set up in 2010 and aims to make the world a little happier by helping disadvantaged children and young people in our local communities.
