Over 200 Hats Donated to Local Homeless Shelter: 2020-21 Baileys Bespoke Charity Work
Keeping heads warm, together
In October 2020 we decided we wanted to do something to give back to our local community in West Sussex. So we launched of our #KeepWarm campaign where for every Baileys Bespoke hat purchased, we donated a warm wooly hat to our local homeless shelter!
We chose a local homeless charity Turning Tides, who are the largest provider of support for homeless men and women in West Sussex. Working alongside their brilliant team we knew that every hat would be distributed to the right place, to help those in need.
It was something close to our hearts and represented just one of the many ways we love to give back to our community - especially as the global pandemic of Covid was still continuing to take its toll on people in the UK.
Over the Christmas period our hat sales soared, meaning so did our hat donations! And so by October this year (2021), with your help, we have been able to donate over 200 hats to Turning Tides.
It's something we are super proud of and can't wait to support even more local charitable organisations!
