The team from Specsavers in Gloucester marked Wear A Hat Day on Thursday 29 March and raised £500 for Brain Tumour Research.

Not only did the team don hats to work, they held a savoury treat and cake sale and a raffle to boost the fundraising total. 

A word from the store director

Store director, Paul Chessell, said: ‘We’re always keen to get involved when it comes to fundraising events. We had great fun wearing hats and were delighted to raise £500 for Brain Tumour Research, enabling the charity to continue with its invaluable 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 has been allocated to this devastating disease.

‘Eye tests are more than prescription checks as underlying conditions can be picked up, including brain tumours,’ continued Paul. ‘This is why we recommend everyone has an eye test once every two years, even if you don’t wear specs.’
