Stockton North MP Alex Cunningham showed his support for Brain Tumour Research earlier this month by attending their drop-in at Parliament and putting on a pink top hat to raise awareness about the cause.
On Thursday 29th March, it is ‘Wear A Hot’ day where people are being encouraged to grab their favourite hat and raise funds to advance the search for a cure for brain tumours.
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Brain Tumours ran the drop-in, and have been campaigning to raise awareness on issues facing the brain tumour community in order to improve research, diagnosis, information, support, and care outcomes. Since 2005, MPs and Peers from all parties have worked together on the issues since being founded by member charities of Brain Tumour Research had turned their attention to driving the issue up the political agenda.
Commenting on the letter, Alex, said:
“This is such an important campaign about a horrific disease, and I know that Brain Tumour Research work incredibly hard to raise awareness and raise funds to work towards finding a cure.
“It was great fun to wear a pink top hat and have my photo taken to help raise awareness, and I hope that many of my constituents will take part whether it’s at work, in school or in their community groups. It’s an incredibly worthy cause.”
