Children, teachers and parents - including popular BBC 3CR brodcaster Helen Legh – donned headwear of all shapes, sizes and colours at High Ash Primary School to help find a cure for brain cancer.

They raised a grand total of £445 which will be used for vital research.

Helen, whose daughter Matilda is a pupil, was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour at the end of 2014.

She said: “Wear a Hat Day has been great fun and I’m incredibly grateful for the amazing generosity everyone has shown.

“Research into this devastating disease, which is the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40, is woefully underfunded. I want to do everything I’m able to push for change and raise awareness of the need to dramatically increase research investment into brain tumours to bring it in line with other cancers.”
