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.
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…
- Post a selfie wearing any hat or helmet and use the hashtag #wearahatday
- Tag the SACU and Brain Tumour Research in your post
- 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.
