Touching Lives - March 2011

These boots were made for working

Staff at iknow-uk wearing various kinds of wellies

Funky festival boots, green gardening wellies or trusty winter walkers are all suitable footwear for Action’s annual initiative Wellies to Work day. It’s a great fundraiser and easy to join in: just encourage your colleagues to don their favourite boots on 16 September and collect £2 from each welly-wearer.

You can add in even more fun by having a welly-wanging competition to see who can throw their boots the furthest, a three-legged welly race, a welly fashion show or a decorate your welly competition. Some participants even fill their boots with baked beans!
 
If you need some wellies, there’s plenty of time to get yourself a pair. And if you buy them from wellieboots.com, Action will receive 10 per cent of each sale. 
 
Whatever the weather, wear your boots and raise money for our welly good cause. Welly-wearers have brought in a fantastic £19,000 so far.
