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.”

When it comes to food waste we like to think we know the bigger picture. Those old images of the European tomato mountain being bulldozed into the ground. The mouldy lettuce we’ve hastily hurled into the pedal bin. Well think again.
