Find out more on our new campaign, #Beanies4BrainTumours, and see how you can get involved on the first day of the 2019 cricket season to support the Brain Tumour Charity.
For the first game of the cricket season, we invite clubs to purchase customised beanies to wear on the field. The beanies, designed in partnership with Brain Tumour Charity, help show your support and raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity - which is a charity very close to the heart of Cricket Scotland. Our goal is to raise £3,500 which could fund two weeks of research for one of the Brain Tumour Charity's leading brain tumour researchers to improve understanding and provide more targeted treatments.
In 2018, news of Scotland all-rounder Con de Lange’s brain tumour was made public. Since then, the community has rallied in support to raise vital funds for the Brain Tumour Charity. The Brain Tumour Charity is at the forefront of the fight to defeat brain tumours, making a difference every day to the lives of people with a brain tumour and their families. It funds pioneering research to increase survival, raises awareness of the symptoms and effects of brain tumours and provides support for everyone affected.
To show your support for Con de Lange and the Brain Tumour Charity, you just need to sign up with us and our team will send you an information pack which will include how to order your beanies, why we are holding this event and other important information. In addition to the beanies, we encourage clubs to hold a small fundraiser to raise additional funds. The Brain Tumour Charity will provide you with a free pack to do so which includes information on the charity, branding materials to decorate your clubhouse and fundraising ideas. If interested in holding your own fundraising event alongside #Beanies4BrainTumours, all you need to do is visit the Brain Tumour Charity's website by clicking the link below.
If you want to go above and beyond wearing beanies at your first game, that's great! You can host various activities and events at your club to help raise extra funds. The Brain Tumour Charity have a Fundraising Ideas Generator tool for you to get inspired.
