ONESIES were in Christmas stockings across the country last month and now people are being encouraged to wear them for charity.

Youngsters are being asked to wear theirs to school or after-school activities to raise money for St Clare Hospice, which supports patients with life-limiting illnesses in the area.

The Onesie Week fundraising campaign, centred around Onesie Wednesday on February 13, encourages schools or groups such as Brownies and Scouts to let youngsters - and of course adults - wear the comfortable all-in-one suits during the day in return for a £1 donation to the charity.

Other fundraising ideas during the week, from February 11-17, include holding a ‘Onesie disco’ or a film night.

It is hoped the campaign could raise £5,000 - enough to pay for an in-patient’s care at the Hospice for 10 days.
