Be like a proper mariner! Just the simple act of wearing a woolly hat to work on Friday 24 October will be a big boost to the Mission to Seafarers – and you could walk away with a bottle of wine courtesy of WISTA-UK.
Friday 24 October is Woolly Hat Day and all you need to do is wear a woolly hat to work, snap a photo and send it to us. You can also drag other members of the family into the day, including your pets, and still qualify for that welcoming bottle of wine from the WISTA-UK cellar.
WISTA-UK auctioned 2 woolly hats last July at their 40th Anniversary Gala Dinner to mark the Woolly Hat campaign organised by the Mission to Seafarers as part of the Came by SHIP / Mission to Seafarers support.
Send your photos to email@example.com
How about also making a donation to the Mission to Seafarers who do a wonderful job in supporting current and former mariners.
To help this worthy charity, please text WOOL11 £3 to 70070 to donate just £3 towards their work.
You can also Tweet your WHD photos to @flyingangelnews using #WHD14 and #camebyship
