Put on your KuSan hat and help us support Brain Tumour Research
KuSan is proud to be supporting the work of leading UK charity Brain Tumour Research through their brilliant annual Wear A Hat Day fundraising event.
Taking place on Friday 27th March 2020 as the culmination of Brain Tumour Awareness Month, Wear A Hat Day is among the foremost of UK charity events, bringing communities together to raise funds for a vital cause in one of the most upbeat, vibrant and visually pleasing awareness days of the year.
After we lost several close family members to the brain tumours over time, we wanted to do something positive and meaningful in response. Once we recognised the important work that Brain Tumour Research was doing, KuSan has been supporting them ever since.
Anyone can take part in Wear A Hat Day – just visit the website and sign up to get your FREE fundraising pack!
As well as taking part in Wear A Hat Day every year, encouraging donations, running competitions and raising awareness, in 2018 KuSan launched a pair of exclusive bobble hats for Brain Tumour Research, designed to complement the charity’s signature pink and yellow branding.
The hats, designed in London and handmade in Nepal from New Zealand wool, are perfect fashionable accessories for the colder UK months and of course ideal for any Wear A Hat Day event. These hats, along with the lovely companion bobble-hat keyrings we also made, are available to buy from the charity – see their merchandise on their eBay page here. The hats are also available from many good hat retailers – see here. For every KuSan bobble hat sold (from wherever), we will donate £4 to Brain Tumour Research. So get yours now and wear it with pride.
We know there is loyal band of KuSan followers out there so please join our effort and encourage your friends as well! You know the gig… All you need to do is post a photo on our Facebook page or tag us in Instagram wearing your favourite KuSan hat on Friday 27th March and we will donate £2 per unique picture. We’d like to reach a total of at least £500 – so that’s 250 posts. We hope we can go over this total!
You did such a good job last year… SO we want you to do it again!!

About the Brain Tumour Research charity
Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What’s more, they kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer… yet historically just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.
Brain Tumour Research is determined to change this.
The charity is building a network of experts in sustainable research at dedicated Centres of Excellence whilst influencing the Government and larger cancer charities to invest more nationally.
Brain Tumour Research is the only national charity in the UK dedicated to raising funds for continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours and it is leading voice calling for greater support and action for research into what scientists are calling the last battleground against cancer.
