Wear a Hat Day 2014


Friday 28th March was Wear a Hat Day 2014 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.


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




March is Brain Tumour Awareness Month and we would be extremely grateful if you could help us with our annual campaign and encourage your staff, colleagues, and/or pupils to ‘wear a hat for brain tumours’.

To get involved, simply ask people to Wear a Hat in return for a donation to Taylan’s Project. Better still, nominate your ‘Head’ to wear a hat for the day and pledge a further donation, or ask your company to match whatever you raise.

It really does not matter if there is 2 or 2,000 of you!

You can organise an event around the day and design a hat, make a hat, run a best hat competition, hold a hat quiz, or anything else you can think of.

In previous years, people have held cake sales, coffee mornings, mufti days, competitions and taken on some weird and wonderful challenges along with their ‘wear a hat day’, raising thousands for Taylan’s Project to help towards research into brain tumours.

Brain tumour research receives less than 1% of national cancer research spending in the UK yet this devastating 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.

In the UK, brain tumours take more lives of

  • Children than leukaemia or any other cancer

    More women under the age of 35 than breast or any other cancer

  • More men under the age of 45 than prostate or any other cancer

  • Yet brain tumour research receives less than 1% of national cancer research spending
