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

Get your thinking caps on for Wear A Hat Day 2021

Wear A Hat Day is back, taking place on Friday 26th March.

Wear A Hat Day is one of the UK’s biggest and best-loved brain tumour research awareness and fundraising days. Since its launch in 2010, Wear A Hat Day has raised millions to help fund our vital work to get closer to a cure for brain tumours.

This year we’re celebrating key workers who have played a pivotal role throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. We are working with key worker families who, despite having their own devastating brain tumour stories, are determined to show the joy and positivity that is being involved in Wear A Hat Day. We’ll be sharing their stories in the run up to the big day.

We’ve also developed six new pin badges this year, all designed around hats worn by key workers. The children and collectors out there will love them!

Whilst we’re still living with COVID-19, we must all observe safety measures when planning our events. But if the last year has taught us anything, it’s that we can still raise lots of funds even in lockdown.

Get your family, friends, workplace or school involved, virtually or in-person where restrictions allow. Involve as many people as possible to maximise your fundraising and above all, have great fun and make brilliant memories.

Please register online for Wear A Hat Day today and help us get closer to a cure for brain tumours.
