Wear a Hat Day

WI Drumbeg hats

Wear a hat on Wear a Hat Day and help us improve life for older people!

Be part of this unique fundraising event to raise money to help older people in Northern Ireland whilst having lots fun at the same time.

Across Northern Ireland schools, offices and organisations wear a hat in exchange for a suggested donation of £2 to Age NI. Your hat can be created, borrowed or bought and you can make the day as much fun as you like - the only limit is your imagination.  

What better excuse to have some fun! Run a competition, have a fashion show, organise a quiz or tea party or just enjoy wearing a hat for the day.  Why not organise a 'Wear a Hat coffee morning', 'Wear a Hat pub quiz' or even a 'Wear a Hat Birthday Party'.
