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

The hats are back – it’s Wear A Hat Day!

The big day is finally here and we're bowlered away by the sheer volume of people getting involved across the UK in schools, workplaces, at home and in the community.

The day is off to a beret-illiant start with many people sharing their hatty photos on social media and we know that there are hundreds of exciting events taking place. And last night the nation got a great reminder as DJ Jo Whiley themed her BBC Radio Two show all around hats.

Don’t worry if you haven’t planned an event. You can still get involved today and help maximise the vital funds we raise to help find a cure for brain tumours.

Put on your favourite hat, snap a selfie and share it on social media using #WearAHatday to help spread awareness. Make your donation here and tag family and friends to do the same to help get as many people as possible involved. Wherever you are posting, remember to use #WearAHatDay and tag Brain Tumour Research so we can see all your hatty antics.

If you don’t use social media, please consider donating via our website here. You could also send a text message, WhatsApp or email to your loved ones, letting them know why you are wearing your hat and donating, and sharing the link to ask them to do the same.

We really appreciate everyone’s enthusiasm and dedication in supporting Wear A Hat Day and helping to raise vital funds and awareness to help find a cure for brain tumours, bringing hope to patients such as Stu and his family (pictured).

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, have a hattacular day!
