(no) Hats for Headway Street Party

13 May at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Hats for Headway Day is an annual fundraising event in which Headway invites anyone who wants to help improve life after brain injury to wear a wacky hat, make a donation to Headway, and post a picture on social media to show support.   It will be recognised this year on 17 May 2024.

Headway North Cumbria will hold our own event in the form of a street party which will be held in the main hall of the New Waterton Hall on 13 May 2024.  Whilst this is considered a Hats for Headway fundraising event there will be no expectation for attendees to wear a hat or any other item of fancy dress –  please come as you are.  We will meet from 1pm and hold our street party between 1:30pm and 3:30pm.  The format will be similar to that of the Street Party for the Coronation of King Charles III we held on 15 May 2023. 

In the spirit of the traditional street party, and in order to keep costs down, we are looking to our volunteers and members to bring food to share with others.  This is not obligatory, but if you do wish to contribute something to the party please let the Secretary know that you will be doing so, and give an idea of what it is that you would like to provide.  This will help ensure that we match what is being offered to the number of people that we expect to attend.

In order to ensure that we do not under-cater or over-cater for the event it would be great to have an early understanding of how many members might be attending.  Those members that would like to participate are invited to let the Secretary know as soon as possible.

This is a fundraising event so we would ask attendees to pay a minimum £5 donation to participate.


If you are unable to attend the street party but wish to donate to the branch then please do so in the collection box that we have at the Day Centre or by contacting our Treasurer, Julian, through the Helpline – 07508 111834 – or by visiting our Just Giving page
