Griff Rhys Jones 3This Friday marks the grand finale of The Mission to Seafarers’ vibrant Woolly Hat Day (WHD) campaign 2014, which has seen Mission supporters putting on their woolly hats to celebrate seafaring life and raise money for merchant crews in need across the world.

This year the WHD campaign has been supported by a host of celebrities including Sir Richard Branson, Dawn French, Griff Rhys Jones and Neil Oliver; plus this year P&O Ferries’ staff will be fundraising on board all 15 of their ships to support the vital humanitarian work of MtS.

The Mission to Seafarers is also delighted that Southampton Solent University have taken up the challenge and will be fundraising throughout their campus and there are many many more companies too numerous to mention, but to whom we would like to send our thanks.

Andrew Wright, Secretary General, said “I can’t believe the wonderful response to our call to action this year. So many people all over the world have really got behind this campaign. On this day we are keenly reminded that 90% of international trade is shipped around the globe, and without seafarers this could not happen. To everyone holding a Woolly Hat Day, massive thanks.”

All you need to do to take part this Friday in Woolly Hat Day 2014 is wear a woolly hat and text us a donation – simple! Please text WOOL11 £3 to 70070 to send us £3. We are also asking our supporters to Tweet their WHD photos to @flyingangelnews using #WHD14.

MtS is the world’s leading maritime welfare charity, working in 71 countries and in 260 ports, keeping full-time support services running day and night, for seafarers and their families facing hardship, danger and distress.
