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

It’s Wear A Hat Day with Flowers!

It’s Wear A Hat Day with Flowers and hundreds of people across the UK are joining in the fun.

From petalled panamas to blooming berets, flowery fedoras to botanical beanies, we can’t wait to see all your flowery hatty photos from your events. We hope you have a blooming hattastic day and raise lots of funds to help find a cure for brain tumours.

If you’re getting involved, thank you. Don’t forget to share your photos on Twitter, tag us @braintumourrsch and use #WearAHatDaywithFlowers.

We are delighted that BBC TV’s Instant Gardener Danny Clarke (pictured) is also supporting the campaign in memory of his beloved sister Margot McLellan who died from a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) brain tumour at the age of 52.

Danny said: “I had already lost two siblings and a parent in quick succession when Margot became ill. It was heart-breaking to witness her decline over two years following her diagnosis with a GBM.

“I want to do what I can to help the charity Brain Tumour Research so patients like Margot aren’t left with zero treatment options and their families aren’t forced to watch them suffer like she did.”

If you haven’t made any plans, please consider donating to help us maximise the funds we raise today to help find a cure for this devastating disease.
