Find out more on Cricket Scotland's new campaign, #Beanies4BrainTumours, in partnership with The Brain Tumour Charity.
On the first game of the cricket season, we invite clubs to purchase customised beanies to wear in the field during their first competitive game. 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 across the club network, 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.
We have been overwhelmed with the response from clubs, regional teams and associations. We thank you for your support and are looking forward to seeing players take to the field in beanies. Remember to share your team with #Beanies4BrainTumours.
In 2017, Scotland all-rounder Con de Lange was diagnosed with a brain tumour. 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.
Devastatingly, Con de Lange passed away on Thursday 18th April 2019 aged just 38.
The deadline has now passed to order your charity beanie, but we still want you to help us meet our goal!
We encourage clubs to hold a small fundraiser to raise additional funds for The Brain Tumour Charity. They will provide you with a free fundraising pack which includes information on the charity, branding materials to decorate your clubhouse and fundraising ideas. If interested in holding your own fundraising event alongside or instead of #Beanies4BrainTumours, all you need to do is visit the Brain Tumour Charity's website.
The Brain Tumour Charity have a great Fundraising Ideas Generator tool for you to get inspired and help show your support!
