Hats with a Heart

We’ve teamed up with F&F at Tesco to raise 100k with Hats with a Heart


For the fourth year running, FareShare is partnering with F&F at Tesco to raise funds to support hungry and vulnerable people. F&F will be selling Hats with a Heart in stores nationwide, and for every festive bobble hat sold, they will donate £1 to be shared between FareShare and The Trussell Trust.

The Hats with a Heart collection includes 12 fun and festive designs for adults and children, with elf hats, snowman hats and even a light-up Christmas tree up for grabs. The hats can be purchased from Tesco stores or online at Tesco.com with prices starting from just £5. Every hat sold will make a real difference to people in need this Christmas and beyond.

Lindsey Cape, Head of Fundraising at FareShare, said: “It’s so fantastic that Hats with a Heart is happening again this year, and really shows F&F’s commitment to our cause. This time of year can be a struggle for many people and we know that the money raised will do a lot of good over the festive period. For FareShare, one hat bought can provide the equivalent of two meals for a vulnerable person in need.”

F&F has pledged to donate a minimum of £100k this year, bringing the total raised by the Hats with a Heart initiative to £600k since its launch in 2014.

Alan Wragg, F&F Technical and CSR director, said: “We are very pleased to be able to support FareShare and The Trussell Trust with our Hat with a Heart campaign for the fourth year running. The money raised goes towards providing vital support to vulnerable people in local communities up and down the country.”
