Hats off to Fortress Distribution as they support Brain Tumour Research ‘Wear a Hat Day’ at the Health and Safety Event

Fortress Distribution is delighted to be able to support the Brain Tumour Research charity’s annual ‘Wear A Hat day 2016’ which is the premier brain tumour awareness event in the UK, helping to support long-term, life-saving research to move ever closer to a cure.

This year, the fun day aimed at encouraging everyone to wear a hat, falls on 24th March during the Health and Safety Event at Birmingham’s NEC. With the Brain Tumour Research charity selling a number of different pin badges to promote the day, Fortress Distribution spotted a hard hat pin badge that aptly fits in with this key industry health and safety event.

“Supporting charities is a key part of our corporate values, comments Jenny Matthews, Director at Fortress Distribution. We noticed that Brain Tumour Research have a hard hat pin badge for ‘Wear A Hat Day 2016’ and as it coincides with the Health and Safety Event we wanted to look at ways we could get involved.”
