With the Big Freeze officially here, it’s time to wrap up your little ones and spread some love by supporting National Woolly Vest Week from 23rd to 29th January 2017 with Smalls.
At one of the UK’s coldest times of year, Smalls the award-winning range of everyday Merino base layers for children, is launching its third annual National Woolly Vest Week (#nationalwoollyvestweek) to support and help raise vital funds for High Wycombe Helping Others.
Emma-Jane Adam, Co-Founder of Smalls explains, "This is one of the coldest times of the year in the UK and we believe that it’s really important to wrap our kids up warm so they can focus on important things like having fun. As we all know, there are unfortunately millions of children around the world, particularly refugees, who simply don’t have the same luxuries that we take for granted everyday. We therefore really wanted to support High Wycombe Helping Others this National Woolly Vest Week because of the amazing, valuable work that they’re doing to help refugees around the world”.
Claire Carter, Co-Founder of High Wycombe Helping Others comments, “High Wycombe Helping others is all about the community coming together to help others. We’re touched that Smalls has chosen to support us, it is only with the generosity and thoughtfulness of people like Cat and Emma from Smalls that we’re able to help so many. Many families are surviving in tents and struggling to stay warm this winter so vests and warm clothing are desperately needed. We’re about to send our 18th container of aid and are already working on the next two containers; one with winter aid and one with medical equipment for hospitals in Syria. It's very easy for anyone to get involved be it giving an hour of your time or donating the cost of a cup of coffee. It all adds up.”
Cat Pharo, Co-Founder of Smalls adds, “We’re so inspired by the work that High Wycombe Helping Others is doing to send aid containers to refugees in need in Syria, Lebanon and Greece, that we’re actually volunteering along with our kids and will be spending time helping sorting aid as well as donating proceeds from National Woolly Vest Week”.
Smalls is the creation of Cat Pharo and Emma-Jane Adam, both New Zealand-born mothers-of-three who found there was a gap in the market for high performance and beautifully crafted merino vests. Smalls are thoughtfully designed for maximum comfort, style and function using the world’s most durable and technically advanced natural fibre.
Right from the beginning, Cat and Emma-Jane were dedicated in their mission to get British kids wearing woolly vests, not just for the health benefits of keeping warm in winter, but also to help kids stay dry and comfortable on bitter cold winter walks, inside and outside the classroom and to keep them smiling through the cold.
Smalls base layers have been designed with active kids in mind with longer lengths so they don’t ride up, made from 100% natural and breathable superfine Merino wool, no itchy labels and each Smalls vest comes with a sheep bag tag for your school bag. What’s more, Smalls’ Merino traps in your own body heat in millions of tiny air pockets meaning fewer layers, more warmth and more freedom of movement.
