What is the 'Hat to Help' campaign? 

The Urdd is facing the biggest challenge in our 98-year history due to Covid-19.

In the past few months, Covid-19 has left no choice but to

  • cut the Urdd workforce in half

  • close our three centres for residents and community visits

  • and suspend all sports, the Eisteddfod and arts activities

As a result, we expect to see a substantial reduction in income over the next two years, affecting our hard-working staff, our volunteers and of course, our young members.

The Urdd has therefore launched the ‘Hat to Help’ campaign, encouraging people all over Wales and beyond to buy a Hat to Help as a way to support the organisation through the winter.

If you can, please consider buying a Hat to Help. For yourself, for loved ones, or as Christmas gifts - we're grateful for your support.
