On Saturday, 15th April, we held our first monthly charity coffee afternoon. Our chosen charity for the month was Brain Tumour Research UK, with us donning hats for their Wear A Hat Day theme.
Great fun was had at the coffee afternoon, with residents, relatives and staff enjoying refreshments and yummy home bakes.
We raised £54.20; thanks to all residents, staff and relatives for the kind donations and support.
Wear A Hat Day is an annual fundraising event founded by the Brain Tumour Research Foundation. It encourages people to wear their most stylish (or out-there) headgear and help raise money to fund scientific research. One in three people knows someone affected by this devastating disease, killing more people under the age of 40 than any other.
No cure currently exists, which is why it’s so important for us to do what we can to support brain tumour research and the brilliant minds working tirelessly to find a cure.
Wear A Hat Day is a family of three fantastic annual fundraising events. Brain Tumour Research’s next event is Wear A Hat Day with Flowers, on Friday, 23rd June, perfect for fancy fundraiser summer fun. Why not don your flower-covered hats or wear your flowery shirts and skirts and support this amazing charity! Find out all you need to know here – Brain Tumour Research | Together we will find a cure
We will be selecting a different charity to support each month. The next charity coffee afternoon is planned for the 27th of May at 2-4 pm in The Hub, and we will be supporting Dementia Awareness UK. We hope to see you there!
