Hats off to Warwickshire pupils raising awareness for brain tumour charity

PROUD pupils at Heathcote Primary school have been raising awareness for Brain Tumour Research by celebrating Wear A Hat Day.

Wear A Hat Day encouraged people across the UK to wear hats of all shapes and sizes to work as a reminder of a disease that is often invisible.

Housebuilder David Wilson Homes made a donation of hard hats and art supplies to the Year 5 class at Heathcote Primary School, so pupils could decorate their hats based on their favourite parts of the local community.

The hard hats are planned to be used for a site safety visit with the pupils at David Wilson Homes’ nearby development, Beaumont at Warwick Gates.

Teacher Charlotte Cowley said: “Year 5 thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to paint the hard hats provided by David Wilson Homes.

“The children took great pride in creating designs to celebrate our local area and to raise awareness for the Wear A Hat Day campaign.”

Mel Tiley, community development manager at Brain Tumour Research, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to David Wilson Homes and Heathcote Primary school for their support on Wear A Hat Day.”

Dominic Harman, managing director at David Wilson Homes Mercia, said: “With brain tumours killing more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer, we wanted to help bring further awareness of this fantastic charity with the help of the local school pupils.

“We hope this activity has allowed the pupils to have fun while learning about an issue.”
