Go wacky in wool


St Elizabeth Hospice is urging friends, colleagues and classmates to go wacky in wool this December, as part of their Woolly Pully Week.

Following from last year’s success, the local charity is holding this years’ event on the week between 12th and 16th December, and is appealing for local schools, businesses and groups to pull on their craziest knit and do their bit for their local hospice.

Organisations choose a day during the Woolly Pully Week and on their nominated day, everyone has to wear their silliest sweater and donate £2 to St Elizabeth Hospice.

This year the hospice also has a fabulous, fluffy mascot, the very lovable ‘Woolly’ the sheep! Woolly is also available to request for a special visit to local schools and organisations who sign up to the week.

Felicity Rook, St Elizabeth Hospice’s head of fundraising, said, “Christmas jumpers have become such a popular phenomenon in recent years, nearly everybody has a festive top, and Woolly Pully Week is a great excuse to get yours out and wear it to work, school or wherever.

“Holding a jumper day is sure to get you in the festive spirit in the run up to Christmas and is an easy and fun way to raise vital funds for your local hospice and help ensure nobody has to face their illness alone this Christmas.”
