Hats that Help

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.
