KFC Launches Bucket Hats To Raise Money For Red Nose Day

KFC Launches Bucket Hats To Raise Money For Red Nose Day

KFC has launched the ultimate fashion accessory for fried chicken lovers with this chicken-bucket-bucket-hat.

To mark this year's Red Nose Day, the KFC Foundation teamed up with Comic Relief to launch two limited edition reversible bucket hats so you can look finger lickin' good (bit weird, actually) while doing good.

The hats - which come in red or white with a reversible option so you can switch up your style - are available from today (1 March) in the UK and Ireland.

Want to get your hands on one before this year's festival season (hopefully) hits? Head to the KFC store where you can buy one for £19.99.

At least seven quid of that will be going straight to Comic Relief to help out young people in the UK.

In a statement, the fast food giant said: "The KFC Foundation is an official partner of Comic Relief, so whether you're repping the iconic KFC Bucket or the Retro 1978 logo, you will be helping support young people fulfil their potential across the UK."

The company quipped: "And don't forget, the early bird catches the merch."

There's loads of other merch on the KFC store too, from family bucket sweatshirts and logo tees to KFC bobble hats and 'Finger Lickin' Good' mugs.

We should point out that Red Nose Day 2021 takes place on Friday 19 March, marking 35 years of Comic Relief.

The day kicks off with events broadcasted on CBeebies and CBBC, building up to an evening of live telly on BBC One featuring performances, sketches and one-off comedy specials.

The money raised is spent to help poor and disadvantaged people in the UK and the world's poorest communities.

As for the KFC Foundation, since its launch in 2015, the initiative has paid out grants totalling almost £6 million to its charity partners who are passionate about developing and nurturing young people across the country.

So it made sense for the two organisations to join forces - and have a bit of fun while they were at it.

As well as the bucket hats, from 15 to 19 March, KFC will also be increasing their donation to Comic Relief from 5p to £1 for every sharing bucket bought - which you can get your hands on via takeaway, delivery, drive thru and mobile ordering.

As if we needed an excuse to eat more of the Colonel's fried chicken.
