Hats off to the BPMA
The BPMA helped support Wear a Hat Day on the 29 March with director general Gordon Glenister and membership account manager George Turnbull out and about in Cambridge challenging a few hopefuls to wear as many hats as possible in less than a minute.
Charity, Brain Tumour Research created the awareness day that helps fund vital research for this deadly disease of which more than 16,000 people were diagnosed last year. Headwear specialist Sharon Lee provided 50 caps free of charge to support the charity. BPMA helped raise some money for the day and other members got involved in the challenge too.
Many organisations, pressure groups and charities raise vital funds by holding awareness days and most of them use branded merchandise as a key component. The charity also used T-shirts, hat-shaped pin badges, branded hats, wristbands, and pens. The organisation has an impressive store too including aprons, wedding favour cards, cycling jerseys, tea towels, mugs, photobooth kits and car grills.
