Hats for Headway Day takes place on Friday 18 May 2018

Hats for Headway Day takes place during Action for Brain Injury Week on Friday 18 May 2018 and is a simple, fun, and easy way to raise money for brain injury survivors around the UK.

Every year, we ask our members to wear a wacky hat, donate £1 to Headway and post a picture on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #HatsForHeadway.

We were overwhelmed by the response last year, with hundreds of weird and wonderful hat photos shared on social media, and vital funds raised for Headway - the brain injury association and our groups and branches across the UK. Let's make this year's event the best ever!


Wear your hat for a chance to win

Don't forget to share your fantastic hat (or crown!) photos on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using the #HatsForHeadway hashtag to be in with a chance of winning afternoon tea for two at the world-famous Dorchester Hotel in London, courtesy of Conference Care!

The closing date for entries is Friday 25th May 2018. You can also submit your entry via our online form
