Wear A Hat Day 2018 in aid of Brain Tumour Research
Thursday 29th March 2018 is Wear A Hat Day!
Wear A Hat Day was launched by the charity Brain Tumour Research and is the culmination of Brain Tumour Awareness Month. The big day will see schools, workplaces, families and individuals across the UK fundraising and taking part in fun events to raise awareness of brain tumours and help fund life-saving research.
I am selling these gorgeous pin badges from Brain Tumour Research on their behalf in my shop - here. In addition to this, I will also be donating 10% of general sales of anything else on the website, including workshops, from today until the end of April. If everyone on my mailing list bought just one pin badge, together we could donate a wonderful amount to this amazing cause.
Brain Tumour Research is the only national charity in the UK focused on funding sustainable research to find a cure for brain tumours. They have established a game-changing network of world-class Research Centres of Excellence in the UK.
Key statistics on brain tumours:
Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer.
They kill more children than leukaemia
They kill more men under 45 than prostate cancer.
They kill more women under 35 than breast cancer
Just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease
In the UK 16,000 people each year are diagnosed with a brain tumour
Less than 20% of those diagnosed with a brain tumour survive beyond five years compared with an average of 50% across all cancers
Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age
Incidences of, and deaths from, brain tumours are increasing.
