Covers scores a hat trick

Published:  12 March, 2018

Covers’ staff will be helping to raise funds for the Brain Tumour Research charity later this month by supporting its Wear A Hat Day.

Staff at the Portsmouth and Southampton depots will be donning a variety of headwear throughout 29 March in return for donations for Wear A Hat Day, which has raised more than £1 million since it was launched by Brain Tumour Research nine years ago.

Funds raised through Wear A Hat Day 2018 will help to develop the charity’s network of UK research centres.

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 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!”
