SCOTLAND’S governing body for motorcycle sport has launched a fundraising initiative to help boost charity cash for Brain Tumour Research.

And on the organisation’s annual Wear A Hat Day tomorrow, March 26, the SACU will be matching money raised for the cause.

Each year in the UK, around 16,000 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour, with just 12 per cent of those diagnosed surviving more than five years.

Plenty of SACU riders are ready to boost BTR funds…

Despite the tumours being a bigger killer to those under 40 than any other cancer, only one per cent of the national spend on cancer research goes towards Brain Tumour Research. As a result, BTR is calling on the public to help work to find a cure.

To help raise funds, many are taking part in BTR’s annual Wear A Hat Day, with the SACU even setting up its own Just Giving page to boost donations.

Once participants have completed the following…

  1. Post a selfie wearing any hat or helmet and use the hashtag #wearahatday
  2. Tag the SACU and Brain Tumour Research in your post
  3. Donate via the SACU’s Just Giving page

…the SACU will donate £1 to the cause for every person who completes all three steps, matching funds for the entire pot raised up to £200.
