Staff and customers of Specsavers in Exmouth have been treated to a massive selection of home-made cakes in a bid to raise money for Brain Tumour Research.
The store’s annual event raised £266.00 whilst raising awareness and remembering a member staff who sadly died of the disease.
The day is part of this year’s ‘Wear A Hat Day’ which so far has raised, more than £1million. Supermodel, businesswoman and brain tumour survivor Caprice backed the campaign as well as Debbie McGee who lost husband Paul Daniels to the disease three years ago.
Ria Heskins, store director for Exmouth, said: ‘We have baked hundreds of cakes and it’s all been worth it as it’s a fun way to raise awareness of a very serious issue. We want to thank all our customers and staff who joined us on the day. Our aim has always been to raise as much money as possible in order to help Brain Tumour Research continue with its invaluable research.’
Research Funds raised from Wear A Hat Day will be used to build a network of experts in world-class brain tumour research centres in the UK where scientists are focused on improving outcomes for patients and finding a cure.
