Staff at Specsavers in Exeter raised their caps to Brain Tumour Research by supporting Wear A Hat Day 2018 and sporting their finest hats, caps and sombreros in aid of the charity.

The team joined Specsavers employees nationwide to highlight that routine eye tests can detect signs of brain tumours.

The importance of an eye test

Emma Denham, store director at Specsavers Exeter, said: ‘Many people are unaware that eye tests are not only critical for your eyes, but your wider health too. A routine test allows opticians to detect serious issues that can be both sight and, in some cases, life threatening – including brain tumours.

'Wear A Hat Day was great fun and the team did a fantastic job, grabbing everyone's attention for a great cause and raising essential funds.'

Fundraising for a good cause

Wear A Hat Day has raised over £1million since it was launched by the charity Brain Tumour Research nine years ago. Funds raised on Wear A Hat Day are used to build a network of experts in world-class, sustainable brain tumour research in Centres of Excellence across the UK.
