A host of famous faces, groups, schools and companies are joining forces with charity St Mungo's and putting their heads together to help end homelessness for Woolly Hat Day 2017.

Woolly Hat Day (Friday 27 January 2017) sees thousands of people wearing beaded beanies, signed baseball caps and beautiful berets to help St Mungo's raise money for its work supporting homeless people across the country. This year the charity is aiming to raise £60,000 during Woolly Hat Day, which would make life-changing differences to vulnerable people affected by homelessness.

Howard Sinclair, St Mungo's Chief Executive, said: "St Mungo's is committed to ending homelessness and helping people rebuild their lives. Woolly Hat Day is a light hearted way to show support for those without a home, or at risk of losing one.

"With homelessness rising, and Woolly Hat Day in its seventh year, we want it to be even more of a success in raising funds and awareness of our work and the problems people face. By putting your hat on for Woolly Hat Day you can help make a difference to the lives of people who find themselves without a home.

"It is a fun and friendly way to support our charity - we are extremely grateful to everyone who shares our vision to 'end homelessness and rebuild lives'. Our work would not be what it is without the people who give their time, enthusiasm and energy so freely."
