Thank you for taking part in Wear a Hat 2013!

Thursday 28th March was Wear a Hat Day 2013 and we are extremely grateful to everyone who took part in this year's campaign.

So many schools, organisations and businesses supported us by wearing some amazing and fabulous hats whilst raising vital funds for research into brain tumours. 

Some fantastic photo's and incredible donations have gradually started to come in and we will update you all as soon as we know how much we have raised.  Please remember to send in your photo's and visit Facebook.

It is thanks to people like you that we will be able to research better treatments and improve outcomes for brain tumour patients.

Enotria World Wine continues to support Taylan’s Project throughout 2013 after selecting us as their Charity of the Year for the 2nd year in a row. We are truly grateful to them all for their support and generosity. In 2012, they raised £20,000 and they have lots more ideas and events for this year’s calendar too and we cannot wait to see what they get up to!  They kick started off their fundraising with hosting a ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ theme for Wear a Hat Day and had their employees, suppliers and producers from as far as the U.S. and Europe supporting the campaign and raising money and awareness.  They raised just over £366 which will also be kindly matched by the company!  Thank you lovely people!



BMW Vines Group supported us once again this year throughout 3 dealerships and is one of our long-term and loyal supporters.  The ‘best hat’ amongst the competitive staff gets better and better every year and they managed to raise an amazing £336.33 too!  Thank you everyone!  You are all amazing!

The children and staff of Marsh Gibbon CofE School also supports our work continuously and raised a magnificent £100.35!  Thank you children for the creativity and great hats!
