“Since the 'royal wearing’, TheFabCap has been purchased
by customers from all over the world”

TheFabCap, as worn by Prince Harry and Zara Phillips at the Six Nations England Vs France international, is a St George’s cap supporting the Help for Heroes charity.

Designed by Essex businessman Barry Whelan from Wickham Bishop in 2010, TheFabCap has become a fashionable accessory to show support for those who represent and fight for our country. And with St George’s Day taking place on Saturday, 23 April, followed by the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton on Friday, 29 April – this month has plenty of reasons to wear it.

“To date, just short of £8,000 has already been raised through the efforts of TheFabCap, nearing our original target of £10,000” says Barry. “Since the 'royal wearing’, TheFabCap has been purchased by customers from all over the world, and I’ve been posting them as far as Australia, Hong Kong, Canada and America.”

TheFabCap has proved popular with both male and female supporters and large quantities have been bought by organisers of society, corporate, catering and street party events. “It’s a great way to show pride in your country and solidarity in support of our young men and women serving our country,” explains Barry, who donates 50% of TheFabCap profits to the Help for Heroes charity.
The continuing success of TheFabCap has led Barry to commence designing other versions for the Home Nations as well as a Great British version for the Olympics and next year’s Jubilee. “We have exciting new additions in the pipeline, but for now – let’s get St George’s Day celebrations underway.”

TheFabCap, which has the words Support Our Heroes' embroidered on one side, is available in both adult and junior sizes at £6.99 from the website
