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

Wear A Hat Day is back!

We’re delighted to be bringing the hats back on Friday 25th March and we’re encouraging all of you to join in, bring people together and raise vital funds for Brain Tumour Research.

As the culmination of Brain Tumour Awareness Month, Wear A Hat Day has become a nationally important fundraising and awareness event that people all across the UK (and beyond!) support every year.

Several of our celebrity ambassadors are fronting the campaign this year, including TV personalities Danny Clarke and Sarah Beeny, actor and long-time supporter Dame Sheila Hancock DBE, and our patron, supermodel and entrepreneur Caprice Bourret, and they are urging YOU to join in.

Each of them has their own brain tumour story. Danny lost his sister Margot to a brain tumour; Sheila's grandson Jack was treated for a brain tumour when he was just four years old; Sarah was in her 20s when she lost her mum to a brain tumour; Caprice had surgery for a brain tumour six years ago.

You can be one of our Wear A Hat Day stars by registering to take part and planning your own hattastic event at home, work, school, or for your club or community to help find a cure for brain tumours.

New for 2022, the latest set of our collectable Wear A Hat Day pin badges all have a regal theme in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year. Our beautiful new signature brooch, which will be available to purchase later this month, also has a royal connection as it has been designed by the Queen's milliner, Rachel Trevor-Morgan.

Register today and raise vital funds to help us get closer to a cure for this devastating disease. Together, we can make Wear A Hat Day 2022 the biggest and hattiest yet!
