Woolly Hat Day 2016



Get your hats on for Woolly Hat Day on Friday 14th October 2016. The Mission to Seafarers, the largest international maritime charity is encouraging the corporate maritime sector to get on board and support its annual fundraising event, #WoollyHatDay.

The fundraiser generates income for vital services for the world's 1.5million seafarers around the globe, including practical support, repatriation, provision of wi-fi services, hospital visits and justice and welfare cereaadvice.

Laura Brown, Corporate Development Manager at the Mission said, 'This year's Woolly Hat Day has already received great support from companies whose business relies on seafarers. Offices, ports and shipping companies have already signed up to stage a fun event around the theme of Woolly Hats. Some are holding sweepstakes, others bake sales and we even have the support of the retailers who are decorating their shop fronts in a maritime theme! We are asking people to let their imagination go overboard to raise funds for seafarers and their families in a time of need.'
