Welcome to Crazy Hats
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!
