Twin Hats – My social enterprise
I started TWIN HATS, my social enterprise as a way to help fund FREE hats and scarves given to children with hair loss by the charity I founded Cancer Hair Care. The TWIN HATS Charity Promise means that we don’t keep all the profits under our hat we donate a generous percentage to the charity I founded, Cancer Hair Care.
I think I’m one of the few hairdressers you will ever meet who will convince you that putting a hat on your newly quaferred locks is a good idea!. I’m so delighted to retail Fairly traded woolly hats, everyday hats and specialist headwear for alopecia wearers whilst supplying FREE headwear for children with hair loss.
Cancer Hair Care and TWIN HATS work together to deliver the hats in children’s and young people’s hospital units such as Teenage Cancer Trust units and children’s oncology wards. We also work via specialist in-hospital workshops, cancer nurse specialists, cancer youth support workers and via post directly to hospital or home. Todate we have provided hundreds of FREE items of head wear to young people.
Additionally TWIN HATS fulfills the FREE items such as booklets, hair loss dollies and outreach parcels for the charity Cancer Hair Care.
You can support us by buying hats at TWIN HATS.
The Twin Hats Story
We are a small family and friends run social project with a big heart! My husband has photographed so many hats that he dreams of them in his sleep. My kids love stuffing hats into envelopes and if you are a friend (especially called Marg!), sister or volunteer, then you know it’s hat packing whilst we natter, have a cuppa and catch up.
Thank you so much also to all of the other people who have supported this project. From each and every one of our sewers and knitters in the UK, to the lovely artisan craft workers in Nepal who hand knit our hats, as well as the ethical suppliers who ensure that our Woolly Hats are fairly traded, paying a fair wage. Huge respect to the fantastic patients at Cancer Hair Care who have tried and tested every one of our Hair Loss Collection. Also, to the dedicated TWIN HATS and Cancer Hair Care teams for their trust and commitment.
Thanks also Mum for making that first ever Chic Easy Tie Scarf and Cosy Hat for our lovely cancer patients and to Dad for wearing the hat with hair on our first sponsored walk! You are all part of our crew. I would say I take my hat off to you all but one thing is for sure, I’m keeping my TWIN HAT on.
Our Twin Hats Charity Promise means that we don’t keep all the profits under our hat we donate a generous percentage to the charity I founded, Cancer Hair Care. This means that for every purchase you make TWIN HATS gives a donation to charity Cancer Hair Care that helps to gift a hat to a child or a young person with cancer and alopecia. Helping to provide hats, specialist scarves and headwear to offer comfort and confidence during hair loss. We also donate to children with non cancer related alopecia that need a helping hand.
Don’t keep this under your HAT please tell, SHARE and let everyone you know that TWIN HATS is OPEN.
With love and respect
