Flat Caps to Help Brain Tumours

Have you got the brains you were born with? If so do you keep them under your flat cap?


March is ‘Brain Tumour Awareness Month’ in the UK and the charity Brain Tumour Research and Support Across Yorkshire,  at Wagon Lane, Bingley are urging the people of Yorkshire to join their Flat Cap Friday campaign to help raise vital funds and awareness for the Charity No. 1095931 . The flat cap is seen by southerners as the iconic hat of Yorkshire.

 Last March Sheffield Hallam Students’ Union took  part in Flat Cap Friday  With a whole host of Yorkshire themed activities going on including:- Yorkshire pudding burgers and real ale in Bar Phoenix and of course a Yorkshire edition of Friday night Karaoke,  Yorkshire toppings on Pizza’s  and a raffle  of Yorkshire foods up for grabs!  It’s was a reyt’ good day! Lets hope they do the same on 30th March 2018 and support this cause.

March is also the month of Wear A Hat Day and is the braintumourresearch ( charity number 1153487) biggest campaign. Wear A Hat Day returns on Thursday 29th March 2018 led by our patron Caprice, a survivor of the disease. Wear A Hat Day raises over £1,000,000
