Wear A Hat Day Events


Wear A Hat Day is a family of three hattastic annual fundraising events. Together these events have raised millions of pounds to help fund the fight against brain tumours.

Each of these events is hugely popular, with tens of thousands of people taking part in schools, workplaces and social communities across the country. We support this fundraising with a fantastic range of collateral and merchandise.

Get your hat on and join us for these brilliant fundraising days!
