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

Join our star-studded Wear A Hat Day line up

This World Cancer Day and with just seven weeks to go until Wear A Hat Day, we need you to register to take part on Friday 25th March to help shape the future of brain tumour research.

Over the last decade, Wear A Hat Day has raised millions to support pioneering research and our campaigning to increase the national investment in brain tumour research. Now, we need your help to make 2022 the biggest and hattiest Wear A Hat Day yet.

We’re thrilled to have several of our celebrity ambassadors onboard and fronting the campaign this year. Each of them has experienced the devastation of a brain tumour diagnosis and are urging YOU to join in to help find a cure.

TV’s Instant Gardener Danny Clarke lost his sister Margot to a brain tumour. Actor and long-time supporter Dame Sheila Hancock DBE’s grandson Jack was treated when he was just four years old. TV personality Sarah Beeny was in her 20s when she lost her mum to a brain tumour. And our Patron Caprice Bourret underwent surgery for a meningioma six years ago.

Join this star-studded line up and register for Wear A Hat Day today. Plan your own hattastic fundraising events at home, work, school, or with your community or club, and have great fun, whilst raising vital funds for Brain Tumour Research.

The money you raise will help towards establishing our fourth UK Research Centre of Excellence this year, where pioneering research will work towards improving outcomes and, ultimately, finding a cure for brain tumours.
