We are delighted to be supporting the work of UK-based charity – Brain Tumour Research, especially as we recently lost a dear family member to this devastating disease. This is our way of trying to make a small difference.
Did you know that in the UK 16,000 people a year are diagnosed with brain tumours?
Brain tumour research is woefully underfunded: just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease, despite it killing more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer. Brain Tumour Research’s vision is to find a cure for brain tumours and their mission is to build a network of experts in sustainable brain tumour research.
Hats play a big part in the charity’s fundraising initiatives – here’s how we’ll be helping to raise funds during 2018:
Wear our hat!
We have created a hat for the charity and a percentage of each sale will go to vital research. In vibrant Brain Tumour Research colours and with information on the special label, we hope to see this hat out and about worn by everyone who knows how important the work of the charity is. Of course it’s handmade in 100% New Zealand wool and we are sure you’ll look very cool, whilst feeling comfortably warm and happy in the knowledge that you’ve help to raise vital funds for an important cause!
Wear A Hat Day 2018
Further to our success last year, we are going to support their rather apt campaign ‘Wear A Hat Day’ again, which takes place annually during March – Brain Tumour Awareness Month. This year it’s on Thursday 29th March, keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates or you can learn more here.
Our own Brain Tumour Research hat will not be available for the day itself – as part of our Autumn/Winter 2018 collection, it will hit the shops and online from September onwards. For a list of stockists and online stores, click here.
