Yes, that’s right, there really is a ‘National Wear a Tea Cosy on your head Day‘ or NWATCOYHD which is what I will be referring to it as throughout this post. It is in fact the third NWATCOYHD White Stuff has organised and this year they are helping raise funds and awareness for 85 local charities which all help and support disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.
Why not find out where your local store is and pop along to their tea party on Thursday 27th September to take part in the kids activities, eat cake, drink tea and raise some cash for your local charity.
If you don’t have a local White Stuff store, you can do your bit and buy a special charity tea cosy online and even take part in their mugshot competition where there are four prizes of £250 for you and £250 for a charity of your choice.
The boys and I will be supporting the charity ‘The Joshua Tree’ at our local store on Thursday.
‘The Joshua Tree is a Cheshire based children’s charity based in Northwich town centre. Our vision and aim is to provide support to families who are going through a traumatic time caring for a child suffering from a condition that seriously affects their immune system; commonly childhood cancers.
We aim to provide a purpose built Holiday House and Support Centre that will enable families to spend some quality time together away from the hospital routine.’
A thoroughly worthwhile charity which I admit I had never heard of until recently. Please take a moment to visit their website and have a look at the work they do for yourself.
White Stuff sent us a tea cosy to get the ball rolling but Spud has been a little camera shy of late acting all celebrity saying “No pictures, No Pictures” so I was very surprised he consented to having a photo taken with a tea cosy on his head but he did and here it is…
He is balancing on top of his Grandad :D
If you’re handy with a pair of knitting needles, you could knit your own tea cosy with the official White Stuff Tea Cosy pattern and if you buy the official cosy for just £3, you can sew up the spout and handle holes and wear it as a beanie this winter. Although, we think the holes are brilliant if you have got your hair up in a ponytail…
…maybe sew up the spout hole though ;) This is Scatty Aunty posing like a pro and I promise I will get some pics of me and the boys enjoying the event on Thursday.
