National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year

Introducing our families who are sharing their stories this Wear A Hat Day

We are always grateful to patients and families who share their stories in order to give comfort, inspire, and bring hope.

This #BrainTumourAwarenessMonth people from across the UK are starring in our Wear A Hat Day Campaign. All know the devastation of a brain tumour diagnosis and their images are featured in this year’s marketing campaign.

This year we are focusing on the devastation brain tumours cause to families. All those featured in the campaign have been bereaved by a brain tumour, are living with a brain tumour, or have a close family member who has been diagnosed. Some families have three generations involved and all are donning their best headwear from beanies to cowboy hats, trilbies to Panamas, baseball caps to novelty headpieces, and are asking others to join them for this year’s event.

Among corporate supporters already signed up for Wear A Hat Day on Friday 27 March are Venture Studios – which worked with the families to create the stunning portraits in the campaign – and Hobbycraft.
