LATEST UPDATE !!
BREAKING NEWS!!!! Crazy Hats now has its own holiday retreat!! We have purchased a lodge/caravan on a lovely site in Hunstanton to give breast cancer patients a welcomed break …. more news on this later …. !!!!
This unique, local charity was first established back in 2001 when its founder, former head teacher Glennis Hooper, was diagnosed with breast cancer at a very significant time in her life. Glennis has an amazing story to tell about her life, and that of thousands of others, since a simple, crazy idea became a reality whilst trying hats on in Debenhams in Northampton when she was on chemotherapy.
Crazy Hats supports all aspects of breast cancer care in Northamptonshire with a small percentage of funds being given to Leicester Royal Infirmary. With an initial donation of £5.00 from an 86 year old lady who had breast cancer at the same time as Glennis, the current total now stands at over £2 million – an amazing amount!
Over the past 14 years we’ve held literally hundreds of events and have attended many more organised fro us. We raised over £2,000,000 and had lots and lots of fun in the process. Click the images below to see for yourself.
