HHHeavenly Hats

Do you have an unwanted hat that you wore once for a special occasion and that is unlikely ever to be worn again? Age UK Norfolk is asking people to donate their unwanted hats to be sold or auctioned to raise money to support older people and their carers in the county.

Bishop of Norwich, The Rt Rev Graham James and his wife Julie have invited Age UK Norfolk to host an open day at the Bishop’s Garden on Sunday, May 17, from 1-5pm. It will have a Heavenly Hats theme with a best hat competition, an auction of hats – many donated by celebrities and businesses – a children’s miniature hat treasure hunt and more. The open day is the perfect occasion to wear your favourite hat too – the more spectacular the better!

Tickets to the Heavenly Hats day are £3, with accompanied under-16s free, from the garden entrance on the day at Bishop’s Garden, Bishop’s House, St Martin at Palace Plain, Norwich, NR3 1SB.

The Bishop’s Garden is open for a variety of charities this summer, from 1-5pm with admission £3, including: It’s on the ball, May 10; RABI, May 24; Lord’s Taverners, June 7; Save the Children, June 14; Leeway, June 28; Norfolk CAB, July 5; National Gardens Scheme, July 12; Livability, July 19; Musical Keys, September 6 and the RSPB, September 13.
