Get Involved
Festival Friday

You’ve all heard of dress-down Fridays, whether it was the classic non-uniform day at school or the ‘casual Fridays’ at work. Get ready for HWF’s version.

Get Into The Festival Spirit

Bring that festival vibe into your workplace or school and add a bit of sparkle to your day for a worthy cause.

Find a Friday and get everyone to dress for their favourite music festival. We’re thinking Glasto, Reading, Isle of Wight and many more. Shorts, loud tees, summery frocks and maybe even wellies! Lots of glitter, makeup, banners, flowers and every type of loud, fun decoration. See if you can magic up a patch of grass, even the fake stuff, and a deckchair or two. Make up some summery mocktails, cut the crusts off those sandwiches and share the love around.

It’s a great way to do some teambuilding, working together with a shared goal of fundraising for our charity, and donating to provide services for our vital healthcare workers across the UK.


  • Wear festival gear in the office

  • Music on…loud!

  • Glitter - lots of it!

  • Deck chairs, tents, sleeping bags…whatever you need to create that festival feeling (mud optional)

  • Take photos

“I’m really excited about Festival Friday because it’s going to be really fun. My friends are amazing, and they are helping too! I want to make sure healthcare workers can support their family, as well as themselves, because they do so much for other people. They deserve it.”

Elise, aged 9, organised her own Festival Friday in her garden with all her friends, and even created colourful invitations!
