Wednesday 2nd December
Child Bereavement UK is asking everyone to put on their cosiest knitwear this December and fundraise to help its work supporting bereaved families and children.
Individuals, groups, companies, schools, and communities are being invited to get festive on the first ever Winter Woolly Wednesday on 2nd December, wrapping up warm in hats, scarves, gloves and jumpers while making a small donation to the charity.
Child Bereavement UK, which is based in Buckinghamshire, helps children and young people (up to the age of 25), parents, and families, to rebuild their lives when a child grieves or when a child dies. The charity also provides training to professionals, equipping them to provide the best possible care to bereaved families.
To take part simply wear your winter woolly on December 2nd and make a donation of £2, or £1 for nurseries, schools or youth groups, via the charity’s website. Take a photo of yourself in your knitwear and share on social media with the hashtag #WinterWoollyWeds and tag @cbukhelp, nominating your friends to wear their woolly and donate too.

Once signed up you will have access to lots of FREE resources that will help you spread the word about Winter Woolly Wednesday and the important work of Child Bereavement UK. You could even hold a fundraising activity, perhaps a virtual bake off, quiz or scavenger hunt, alongside wearing your wonderful woollies.
