Wear A Christmas Hat Day at School

This festive fundraiser is the perfect way to engage pupils, teachers and parents alike, have great fun and build your school community spirit, whilst raising vital funds to help find a cure for brain tumours.

Wear A Christmas Hat Day officially takes place on Friday 16th December or you can choose any other day in December that works for your school.

Getting involved

Here are some fun ideas based on what other schools did last year:

  • Ask every pupil and teachers to donate £1 to wear their favourite Christmas hat – they can craft their own if they want some added festive sparkle
  • Hold a festive-themed fancy dress day and everyone to bring in £2 to wear their best Christmas outfit and, of course, hat
  • Organise a mad hatters bake sale and ask pupils to bring in their favourite festive snacks – collect donations from everyone who wants to sample the tasty treats
  • Hold a lunchtime hat-walk where students can showcase their seasonal hand-crafted hat creations – get teachers involved too for some extra hilarity
  • Hold a hat and Christmas-themed quiz for the whole school and create some competition as classes try to get the most answers right

We can't wait to see you in all your different hats!
