Specsavers Sevenoaks, in the High Street, raised £150 for the charity Brain Tumour Research on Wear a Hat Day this March by wearing their best hats to work.

Annual awareness day

The annual awareness and fundraising day is run by the charity to highlight the need for greater funding for research into the condition.

Currently just 1% of cancer research funding is allocated to research into brain tumours.

Really good cause

Maxine Chakowa, store director in Sevenoaks, said: ‘We were delighted to be able to support Brain Tumour Research on the day.

‘We would like to thank our customers for their generosity, and for their reaction to our hats – which certainly raised awareness as well as much-needed funds for the charity.’
