Woolly Hat Day 2015 will take place on Friday 9th October 2015. It urges maritime industry to wear a woolly hat in support of seafarers around the world. The U.K. Shipping Minister expressed his support by wearing a woolly hat to launch the maritime charity’s annual fundraising initiative. It was organised by Red Ensign Group at London International Shipping Week.
The maritime charity collects donation enlists support from others by wearing a woolly hat, taking a photo and sharing via Facebook and other social media. This year’s campaign is supported by Old Pulteney Maritime Malt Whisky and The Campaign for Wool which will release five bespoke knitting patterns to raise funds for Mission to Seafarers.
The Mission does a great and often unsung welfare work with seafarers across the maritime community and further afield.
New videos and lots of interactive fun are planned via social media.
