Kate’s hat auction helps out a worthy cause!

Kate Hat

Kate has recently donated a faux fur hat that she wore in publicity photos from the ’50 Words For Snow’ album campaign to a celebrity auction held on Ebay. After 58 bids, the hat eventually raised £861 for St. Mungo’s, an organisation that provides emergency shelter for homeless people in London and the South of England. Other famous people who donated hats to the auction included Annie Lennox, Roger Federer, Kevin Spacey, Ricky Gervais, Hugh Jackman, Daniel Craig, Renée Zellweger, Sir Ben Kingsley and Susan Boyle.

    Well done Kate for helping such a worthwhile charity. Homelessness and poverty are close to so many people these days; supporting the likes of St Mungos is something that needs to be applauded.

    That was sweet of Kate! But I expect nothing less!

    Thanks for letting us know in advance! Talk about shutting the gate after the horse has bolted…

    How funny my work supports St Mungo’s too – weird thing is I also gave my hat. Wish I’d signed it now 🙂

  5. I would like to wish Kate, Dan & Albert-Bertie a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Please pray for the people of Newtown, CT who have suffered so much during the past two weeks.
