Wear A Hat Day 2013 is on Thursday March 28th. Get planning. Get involved.
Join the nation’s largest brain tumour awareness and fundraising event.
Wear a hat on 28th of March in return for donations of a pound or two – or more!
We’re hoping as many of you to get involved as possible. From schools, colleges and universities to shops, offices and clubs, we are asking school children, students, workers, indeed everyone, to get involved. From best hat and hat throwing competitions to raffles, sponsored silences and passing the hat to collect donations, hundreds of organisations and thousands of people around the country will be helping to fund the fight against brain tumours.
As well as collecting donations, you can raise even more money by selling our delightful Wear A Hat Day badges specially designed for the event
This year’s fabulous designs include a Mortarboard (as worn by academic students and staff), an Easter Bonnet, a Builder’s Hard Hat, and a Royal Crown – one to suit every taste. The badges and badge boxes will be available in February as part of our fundraising pack.
All the badges produced for Wear A Hat Day can be sold before during and after the event itself, which is a great way of keeping the fundraising going with minimal effort!• Ask your place of work to get involved
We will also have an exclusive brooch designed by the wonderfully talented Rachel Trevor-Morgan, Milliner to Her Majesty The Queen. The brooch will be available from March 1st for a suggested donation of £10. Orders are encouraged now for what will likely be a fast-selling collector’s item!
We need your support to make this our biggest and best Wear A Hat Day ever, so please ask everyone you know to get involved:
• Ask your place of work to get involved
• Ask your child’s school to get involved
• Ask your club to get involved
• Ask all your friends to get involved
If each one of you gets commitment from another five schools or businesses or clubs, then we can really make Wear A Hat Day the biggest and most successful brain tumour awareness event in the UK ever.
The more of you who get involved, the more money we can raise to help put an end to brain tumours once and for all!
