Charity Link encourages you to ‘Get Funky’ next Friday

Local charity, Charity Link, is asking you to ‘Get Funky’ on Friday 25th January by supporting its annual dress up day, Wear a Funky Scarf Day, to help local people in hardship.

The annual event encourages individuals, schools and businesses to raise vital funds by wearing their favourite or most funky scarves and giving a donation of their choice to help provide essential items to local people in need, including food, warm clothing and beds.

Due to Charity Link’s unique way of working, raising funds from charitable trusts around the UK, it can turn a £10 donation into £50 of vital support.  This means that raising £25 by supporting Wear a Funky Scarf Day could actually buy a bed for a vulnerable local child.

A free fundraising pack, including stickers for those taking part, is available now.  Visit or call 0116 222 2218.
