On Thursday 24 March, silly hats were the order of the day as Novum Law donned its weirdest, most bizarre headgear to support ‘Wear a Hat Day’ in support of Brain Tumour Research.
Competition was fierce among the Novum Law team for the most ridiculous hat and much fun was had by all while supporting such a fantastic cause to raise money for much-needed research into brain tumours and to raise awareness of tumours in the brain which affect young and old alike.
Alexandra Moore, who won the accolade of having the most outlandish hat, said: “Brain Tumour Research’s ‘Wear a Hat Day’ campaign is such a worthy cause. At Novum Law we regularly help people and their families who have been affected by brain injuries and disease and so this charity is very close to all our hearts.
“We hope that by raising awareness of the wonderful work Brain Tumour Research does and donating, we will help scientists find more effective treatments and, ultimately a cure, for this devastating disease.”
‘Wear a Hat Day’ is the UK’s premier brain tumour awareness event, raising money to improve the lives of patients and help find a cure. Now in its sixth year, it is inspired by the 16,000 people who are diagnosed each year and it is dedicated to the memory of those lost to a cancer which hasn’t seen the same advancements in understanding and treatment as some other cancers and is now sadly more common than a generation ago.
Sue Farrington Smith, Chief Executive of Brain Tumour Research, said:
“We are so grateful to everyone who has supported our Wear A Hat Day. All donations will help fund vital research. Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer … yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research is allocated to this devastating disease. This is unacceptable!
“We are striving to fund a network of seven dedicated research centres while challenging the government and larger cancer charities to invest more in brain tumour research. Help us fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.”
