Wear a hat day in Market Overton supports The Brain Tumour Charity




People living and working in a village have ‘put their heads together’ to raise money for a good cause.

They wore a variety of eye-catching hats in Market Overton during National Wear a Hat Week at the end of March, and with the sale of home-bakes and second-hand books adding to the community spirit, £738 was raised for The Brain Tumour Charity.

Sally Hunt from The Market Store village shop in Market Overton lost her husband, Paul to a brain tumour three years ago, and said people’s support had been ‘wonderful’.

“So many people got behind us and we had people coming into the shop and making significant donations,” she said.

“The team at the store - which includes one young individual who is volunteering with us for their Duke of Edinburgh Award - and people from the village and surrounding areas have been so supportive.”
