Put a Hat On Your Head
On the 30th of March 2012 Brain Tumour Research and its member charities will
be encouraging nurseries, schools, colleges, universities, public sector bodies and
office workers to make a donation in order to nominate their ‘head’ to wear a hat for
the day in aid of the charity’s annual ‘Wear a Hat Day’. The campaign aims to raise
awareness regarding the prevalence of brain tumours and the need for vital research.
‘Wear a Hat Day’ is our annual awareness day which encourages people to make donations
to wear a hat to school or in the office. This year Brain Tumour Research is also encouraging
students and workers nationwide to challenge their ‘head’ to wear a hat for the day. From
sponsored silences to charity runs and office bake-offs, organisations around the country are
being encouraged to raise money in any which way they see fit in order to sponsor their ‘head’
to wear a hat.
Brain Tumour Research receives less than 1% of national cancer research spending in the UK yet the
deadly disease kills more children and people under the age of 40 than any other cancer. ‘Wear a Hat Day’
is a fun way of increasing awareness and getting people raising money for an often overlooked form of cancer.
