In 2016 the Bridport Hat Festival will once again support, with profits from our fund raising and space at the Festival itself, two very worthwhile head-related charities:

  • Brain Tumour Research and
  • BIRT (the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust)

Brain Tumour Research

In the UK more children and people under the age of 40 die of a brain tumour than any other cancer – yet brain tumour research is woefully under-funded. Brain Tumour Research aims to raise at least £7 million per annum. www.braintumourresearch.org

The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust

birt

A charity that leads brain injury rehabilitation across the UK. It is part of the Disabilities Trust group. We aim to provide the best quality neurobehavioural rehabilitation for people with complex and challenging needs after brain injury. Ultimately, we want to enable service users to participate in life as fully as possible, needing the least possible assistance. www.thedtgroup.org/brain-injury
