Countryfile has started selling ramble bobble hats to raise money for BBC’s Children in Need. Here’s how you can purchase one for yourself…
In a bid to transform the lives of disadvantaged children and young people around the UK, the outdoors is being taken advantage of in BBC Countryfile’s fundraising efforts.
They have now created a bobble hat for people to buy in order to raise money. So where and how can you buy one for yourself?
What is the Countryfile ramble bobble hat?
Viewers may have spotted several of Countryfile’s hosts and guest appearances wearing a yellow and blue bobble hat.
It is being worn to celebrate this year’s BBC Countryfile Ramble, which aims to encourage fundraisers to put on their walking boots and raise money.
The ramble challenge can be combined with the BBC’s Act Your Age challenge, which involves taking your age, the combined age of your ramble-mates, or the age of someone special, and turning it into a fundraising target.
And Countryfile have now began selling the Countryfile ramble bobble hat to keep people warm while on their walks. A minimum of 40% of the price of these Pudsey Bobble Hats will benefit BBC Children in Need.
