Thank you Castle Combe Market

Casatle comber
The lovely people at the monthly market in Castle Combe have made a very generous donation to the coffers of Hats that Help. Thank you.

If anyone should find themselves in Castle Combe on the first Saturday of the month call in and check them out. Fresh produce, home made cakes, bread, chutneys, pickles, vinegars and all sorts of gifts from cards to scarves to jewellery.

You can find out more about the market on their Facebook page here.

Can you think of a name?

The Hats that Help team have been given a head! Not a live one but a nice white plastic one on which we can display our hats. The head, we think male but who knows, has made an appearance on this site wearing a variety of delightful hats. However, we think he (?) needs a name. Any suggestions gratefully received. Use the e mail link at the bottom of this page. The person who suggests the name which is eventually chosen will receive a loaf of Damian's bread! Yippee!! Get your thinking boshis on……..

Successful Hat sale at Southampton Hospital

One corner of the Hats that Help stall at Southampton Hospital
The first ever 'Hats that Help' hat sale at Southampton Hospital on February 10th was a great success. Despite the cold the two Joans, Marisa, Amelia and Vix set up and manned the stall (this photo shows just one small corner) and sold numerous hats (thanks to all the knitters and crocheters out there), hand made get well cards (thanks Amelia), edible treats (thanks Wendy), bread and more hats! Lots of happy customers, great people and supportive messages. Damian braved the cold and came to visit and Southampton Hospital Charity took lots of pictures. Our own photo's will be up on the site and on Facebook as soon as we can get them there. More than £280 was raised on the day from sales and many people made a donation to the Southampton Hospital Charity. More lovely people have offered to help cook, knit and crochet for a future event.

As a direct result of the event at Southampton, Hats that Help have also been asked to have a stand at a sale in Basingstoke in May - we still have to find out the date to see if this might be feasible.

A big thank you to all who supported us.

Goodies for sale at Southampton Hospital

We will have a selection of delicious eatables on the stall tomorrow; Ginger and almond cookies, chocolate beetroot tray bakes, and almond snowballs. These are all sugar free, but delicious and packed full of nourishment. In addition there will be a few loaves of 'Damian's bread' on sale. This is a sourdough spelt bread, easy to digest, full of flavour, spices, seeds and goji berries. Fantastically good and just bursting with flavour!
