Wear A Hat Day 2021: Spreading Awareness For Brain Tumour Research

This Friday the 26th of March is Wear A Hat Day 2021, one of the UK’s best-loved fundraising events for brain tumour research!

Although there is still so much more to be done to help find a cure, that doesn’t mean we can’t do our bit to support this amazing cause.

Here at Homes for Students, we’ve been getting involved and going by the motto “the more extravagant the hat…the better!”

But first, let’s take a look at some history of Wear A Hat Day.

What Is Wear A Hat Day 2021?

Since first launching in 2010, Wear A Hat day has raised a whopping £2 million to help fund crucial research.

As well as this, their vital campaigning activity has influenced UK governments and larger cancer charities to invest more in research.

It’s the UK’s biggest brain tumour research funding event that recognises the fact that brain tumours kill more children and adults, than any other type of cancer.

Wear A Hat Day fully supports brain tumour patients and urges the government to help improve research and awareness of brain tumours.

How Can We Help?

It’s simple really, just register and plan your fundraising event for Wear A Hat Day 2021.

Get your family, friends, pals, and even your pets involved…because we need to spread as much awareness as possible.

This year is celebrating key workers, with marketing imagery focusing on key worker families who still want to do their bit – despite with everything that’s happened.

It’s really not that difficult either! Your Wear A Hat Day event can be as simple as posting a selfie on Facebook.

So whether you’re at work, at school, or in the comfort of your own student accommodation watching Netflix – GET INVOLVED!

You can either make a regular donation or a single donation of up to £100, and there are loads of other ways you can fundraise too.
