HUgg Boot (or slipper, or sock) Competition

For everyone whether you’re in business or not, this year is tough!  We could all do with a hug – but they are in short supply with social distancing.  So what do we do for comfort during these times? For many of us we turn to our Ugg Boots. 

As part of Women on the Go networking virtually we decided to call them HUgg Boots.  To lift spirits and warm toes everywhere, we’re running a competition for the best dressed HUgg boots (or slippers, or socks)!

All you have to do is register to attend WOTG, join the KnoxWOTG facebook group, then post a photo of your decorated ‘HUggs’ (or slippers, or socks) in the Facebook group and the competition finalists will be announced with a live final vote happening on the day!
