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

It’s Wear A Christmas Hat Day!

Supporters across the UK are donning their festive headgear for Wear A Christmas Hat Day today to raise vital funds to help find a cure for brain tumours.

Lots of supporters are already sharing their hattastic photos on social media and we’re enjoying seeing updates on fabulous festive events. If you are taking part, don’t forget to share yours too, tag @braintumourrsch and use #WearAChristmasHatDay so we can celebrate with you.

Amongst those taking part today are: 300 pupils from Elmswell Primary School (pictured) who are wearing Christmas hats in memory of two-year-old Harry Crick; brain tumour patient Beth Harris who has organised a raffle at her leisure centre and got the local rugby team to wear their hats; Hannah King-Page who is selling handmade decorations following her diagnosis with a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM); Cerian Llewelyn and her daughters who are heading out for a 14-mile bike ride in memory of their husband and dad, Gwilym; as well as lots more!

If you haven’t made any plans, don’t worry. You can still take part and help fund the fight against this devastating disease:

  • Post a selfie in your favourite festive hat and make a donation
  • Share it on social media using #WearAChristmasHatDay to help spread the word and encourage your friends to do the same
  • Post a selfie to your Instagram or Facebook stories (or both), add a donate button linking to Brain Tumour Research and ask your loved ones to support our cause

Please join in this Wear A Christmas Hat Day and help us bring hope to brain tumour patients and their loved ones.
