There’s no pulling the wool over our staff’s eyes when it comes to collecting money for a good cause! Members of our team donned their finest bobble hats and beanies on Friday in support of Woolly Hat Day, to help homeless people living in Wales.

All the money we raised on the day is being donated to the One Knit Wonder campaign by the Wallich, a charity providing support and accommodation for homeless people in Cardiff and across Wales. As well as wearing our nicest knits, we also held a cake sale at our Cardiff Bay headquarters in support of the event. sales support manager Tracy Carwardine said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to all who took part and contributed to a very successful Woolly Hat Day in aid of the Wallich. By supporting their ‘One Knit Wonder’ campaign, we managed to raise more than £160 to help this fabulous cause.”

Woolly Hat Day is an annual event held across the UK to raise much-needed money for homelessness organisations. Our fundraising fun was the first event in our 2019 employee engagement calendar to support some of our favourite causes, including cancer charities, LGBT awareness and mental health campaigns.
