Wear Your Winter Woollies For UTASS Day!

Our first ever Wear Your Winter Woollies for UTASS day is taking place on Thursday 17th December 2020.

This idea has developed together with our friends from our local Barclays Bank branch in Middleton-in-Teesdale (The last bank in town!), including the manager Natasha Bradley.

We love wool here at UTASS, so what better than getting lots of people to dress in their woollies on a chilly winter’s day to show their support?!

For every £1 we raise through this campaign, Barclays will match it, making every £1 donated worth £2, which I’m sure you’ll agree is a fantastic offer.

All of the money that we raise through Wear Your Winter Woollies will help UTASS deliver services and activities for people living across the Durham Dales who continue to be affected by Covid-19 and the huge changes that this has brought to our communities. Every single donation of £1, or however much you would like to donate, will help us make a difference throughout 2021.

We already have some local schools and businesses getting involved and we can’t wait to see who else chooses to join us.

If you would like to get involved you can:

-Wear your winter woollies to show your support on Thursday 17th December 2020

·        A festive knit

·        Some chunky woolly socks

·        A big woolly hat

·        A toasty cardigan… or all of the above, anything goes… the woollier the better!
