London homeless charity St Mungo’s is calling on people up and down the country to show their support for homeless people by taking part in its Woolly Hat Day on Friday 26 October.
Now in its third year, Woolly Hat Day sees hundreds of people donning beanies, baseball caps and berets to help St Mungo’s raise money for its work supporting homeless men and women.
For the first time this year, St Mungo’s Woolly Hat Day routemaster bus will be parked in Broadgate Circle on Woolly Hat Day from 07:00hrs to 19:00hrs.
During the day, guerrilla knitter Deadly Knitshade and her army of flash knitters will be working on a top secret ‘yarnstorm’. There will also be the chance to get a sneak preview of some of the celebrity hats up for grabs in St Mungo’s Woolly Hat Day hat auction.
People who St Mungo’s has supported in their recovery will be on hand to speak to visitors about their experiences of homelessness on the bus’s Human Library.
There will be food, entertainment and plenty of opportunities to support St Mungo’s work with homeless people in the capital.
