Wylam Wears a Hat

There are an exciting few days ahead in Wylam, and all for a fantastic cause! Wylam Wears a Hat takes place on Thursday, with schools, businesses and groups wearing a hat in support of Brain Tumour Awareness Month. Children from Wylam First School are wearing a hat to school today, and on Thursday hat-themed events will be taking place all over Wylam. The library is having a story and craft afternoon from 2pm-4pm, while The Ship Inn and the Wood Oven will be serving hat-themed cocktails and pizzas. Meanwhile The Black Bull will be holding a raffle with a variety of prizes to be won and The Fox and Hounds are running a quiz, to name just a few of the events being held in Wylam this week. As a brain tumour survivor, I know what a huge difference the funds raised will make. I attended an event in Wylam last year- it was great fun as well as raising money for a wonderful cause, and I am delighted to see that Wylam is coming together for Brain Tumour Awareness Month once again this month! If I can possibly be there, I will be.
