St Mungo's third annual Woolly Hat Day returns Friday 26
October and they are calling on knitters to take up their
needles and get involved, so get your hats on for the homeless!
St Mungo's charity works hard to support homeless people and
help them rebuild their lives. Its aim this year is to get knitters
across the country to whip up 5,678 oftheir distinctive orange
bobble hats to be used in a stunt to launch this year's Woolly Hat
Day campaign and to be sold on Woolly Hat Day to raise vital
funds for St Mungo's. The 5,678 hats represent the number
of people who slept rough on the streets of London last year -
a 43% increase on 2010/2011 figures, and the number of people
sleeping rough continues to grow nationwide.
It couldn't' be easier to get involved. You can download a hat
pattern, donated by CalKnits, or buy a kit (including pattern and
distinctive orange yarn) supplied by Woolly Madly Deeply from the
Woolly Hat Day website. You can even
download a free tag to personalise your hat when you are ready to
London shop, Loop, are acting as HQ for storing the hats so send

Celebrity supporters range from soon-to-be hobbit Martin Freeman
to comedians Ed Byrne and Alexi Sayle. Frank as ever, Alexei says
it best: "Being homeless is about as unfunny as it can get. As
human beings it's up to us to help each other out, so put a hat on
for St Mungo's Woolly Hat Day, have a laugh and do something to
support an important cause."
