Offaly people urged to take part in #WearAHatDay for Brain Tumour Ireland

Offaly people urged to take part in #WearAHatDay for Brain Tumour Ireland

Brain Tumour Ireland, the national organisation which helps and provides support for people and families directly affected by brain tumours, is calling on Offaly people to get involved and support their annual #WearAHatDay, taking place on Friday, October 26.

To support #WearAHatDay, Brain Tumour Ireland is encouraging Offaly locals to share a photo of themselves in their favourite hat using the hashtag #WearAHatDay and text BTI to 50300 to donate €4.

Milliner Philip Treacy has designed a brooch in his signature style to raise much-needed funds for Brain Tumour Ireland to deliver patient support and information services, raise awareness, and fund research.

The brooch goes on sale as part of the charity’s annual fundraising day #WearAHatDay on 26th October 2018. The brooches will be available to buy from Beaumont Hospital on Friday and can be purchased online from Brain Tumour Ireland’s website from Thursday, November 1.

Over 400 brain tumours are diagnosed in Ireland each year; it is a diagnosis that can be overwhelming for patients and their families. Every #WearAHatDay donation made will contribute to Brain Tumour Ireland’s work on behalf of patients and their families.

 #WearAHatDay takes places as part of International Brain Tumour Awareness Week (20 – 27 October) and further information can be found here: www.braintumourireland.com/news/wearahatday-2018-get-involved/
