Wearing W for Winston's Wish

Wigs, wellies, Windsor Castle and even a washing machine were just some of the most amazing outfits donned by supporters on a fundraising Wear W Day.

Child bereavement charity Winston's Wish raised awareness of the support it offers to children who have lost a parent, sibling or carer, by encouraging people to ditch their uniforms and dress up as something beginning with its initials.

"Wear W Day isn't your average dress down day," said Winston's Wish regional fundraising and events manager, Sophie Birch.

"By wearing W, companies, schools and individuals all over the UK have brought hope to grieving children whilst getting creative."

Supporters from across the country each donated £1 to take part in the charity's #WearWDay. Creative costume themes included Walker's Crisps, Arsene Wenger, someone dressed as Whatsapp, and even Windsor Castle.
