Covers staff to don headwear for charity

Covers’ staff will be helping to raise funds for Brain Tumour Research by supporting the charity’s Wear A Hat Day on Thursday 29th March.

Staff at the Portsmouth and Southampton depots will be donning a variety of different headwear throughout the day in return for donations for Wear A Hat Day, which has raised over a million pounds since it was launched by Brain Tumour Research nine years ago.

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. Funds raised through Wear A Hat Day 2018 will develop the charity’s network of world-class research centres in the UK.

Henry Green, Managing Director at Covers, said: “One of our employees had a friend who was affected by the disease and very sadly passed away last year. At Covers we are always keen to help raise awareness of the important endeavours being undertaken by charities, so we are delighted to be supporting Brain Tumour Research so more people can benefit from the great work that they do.”

Tim Green, Community Fundraising Manager at Brain Tumour Research, said:

“Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone, at any age. We are extremely grateful to everyone at Covers for getting involved, and hope people will be inspired to hold their own events. It’s as easy as wearing a hat and making a donation!”
