Sunny spells are forecast for Friday, as the mild weather continues, but Worthing will still be full of people wearing woolly hats.
Businesses, individuals, schools and groups are supporting Turning Tides’ Wear a Woolly Hat Day on February 15, raising money to help homeless people in the area.
Accountants Kreston Reeves, Asda Ferring, The Globe Primary Academy in Lancing, St Margaret’s Primary School in Angmering and business networking group BNI Worthing are among those signed up already, plus Canine Conundrum UK will be taking part in a dog-friendly social beach walk for the cause.
Sophie Moore, community fundraiser, said: “This fun day is a great way to increase awareness of the cause and raise money for our projects.”
The charity is inviting people to wear a woolly hat, donate by texting WOOL22 £amount to 70070 and post a photo on social media.
Supporters can use the hashtags #WoollyHat2019 and #endinglocalhomelessness and link to Turning Tides, too.
In past years, workplaces have held cake sales to raise funds and collected warm clothing or food to help support the projects.
