Stotfold pupils support Wear a Hat Day for Brain Tumour Research
Stotfold pupils at St Mary’s CE Academy celebrated Wear a Hat Day to raise awareness for Brain Tumour Research.
To help the creative school pupils get into the spirit, developer David Wilson Homes gifted a number of children’s hard hats and art supplies, so students could decorate their own headgear.
Wear A Hat Day encourages people to wear hats to draw attention to the head, reminding everyone of a disease that is often invisible while raising funds for research and awareness of living with a brain tumour.
The staff at St Mary’s CE Academy said: “This is a very worthwhile charity and a cause close to our hearts. We are happy to offer our support and the children have loved decorating and wearing the hats.”
Brain Tumour Research is the only UK charity dedicated to raising funds for continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours. It is currently developing a network of experts in sustainable research and is influencing the government and larger cancer charities to invest more nationally in the fight against brain tumours.
Jason Hearn, sales director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “With brain tumours killing more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer, we hope this donation can help bring further awareness to this charity.
“As a leading homebuilder, we aim to engage with and support local communities and charities as much as possible and we hope this activity has allowed the pupils at St Mary’s CE Academy to have fun while learning about a worthwhile issue.”
