Things will be getting woolly this winter...

This December, get your knitwear at the ready and prepare to raise vital funds for Big Issue vendors braving the cold this winter. Wear Something Woolly Day is a fun and simple way for organisations, schools and businesses to raise money for The Big Issue Foundation. Over the last four years, we’ve seen over £25,000 raised by keen knitters and knitwear lovers so get ready to get woolly!

For a £2 donation, sport your woolly clothes with pride, knowing that the money you are raising is helping people Big Issue vendors to rebuild their lives this winter. Our suggested date is Friday 7th December, but you can pick a different date if you like – just let us know when you would like to host your day and we can send you collection boxes, balloons and maybe even a speaker from TBIF!

Your donations will help us in our mission to connect every Big Issue vendor to the support and personal solutions that enable them to rebuild their lives. By taking part in Wear Something Woolly Day, you’ll be helping more and more vendors like June and Matthew on their paths away from poverty.

How to get involved:

Get creative- Print out our design and create your own bunting!

Swap Shop – Swap your jumpers, hats and scarves in the run up to the day and mix up your woolly wardrobe

Knitting – Do you or someone in your school or office know how to knit? Why not run a workshop in your lunchbreak and teach everyone how to get woolly!
