The Great Integrate Hat Auction will be held at the United Reformed Church in Diss (opposite the Co-op) from 7pm-9pm and as well as auctioning hats, the evening will include puddings and some hats and accessories for sale in time for Christmas!
However, in order to make this fundraising evening a success and enable us to raise vital funds to be able to keep running youth cafes and school lunchtime clubs, we need your help!
Do you, or someone you know, have the ability to knit, crochet or sew a hat for our auction? The hats can be any shape, style or size – whether they are everyday hats, hats for special occasions or novelty hats, such as animal hats , we’d love them for the auction/sale. If you can’t knit/crochet yourself, perhaps you’d consider donating some wool for our young people to knit up – chunky, aran or extra chunky wool are best! We will also accept bought hats (new) or even those bought for a wedding and only worn once!* Another way to support this event is to come on the 14th December and if you enjoy cooking, you could even donate a pudding (please email us so we know it’s coming!). We hope to make this a fun evening for everyone, with young people modelling some of the hats to be auctioned.
Please spread the word to others in your churches and support this event. Hats can be brought to the office, sent with young people to a youth café, or if you’d like to collect them in your church, we can arrange for them to be picked up.
