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, 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.
