Wear A Hat Day was marked by all attendees at an event in Westminster on 12th March, at which we launched our latest statistics report illustrating the chronic lack of funding for brain tumour research.

The event was attended by 19 MPs - unprecedented for an event focussed on funding for brain tumours - many constituents and supporters as well as various representatives from our fabulous family of member Charities and Fundraising Groups. Here are some of the photos from the event.
