A CHARITY is asking people to raise money for the homeless by wearing woolly hats.

Brighton-based charity Off the Fence is holding Woolly Hat Day on Friday, February 28, as part of their Project Antifreeze to prevent deaths in the homeless community.

To take part, supporters need to wear a woolly hat and make a donation by texting WOOL, followed by the amount, to 70085.

Project Antifreeze has been supporting rough sleepers on the streets and from their day centre in Portland Road since 1997.
