Hats for Headway Day takes place during Action for Brain Injury Week on Friday 18 May 2018 and is a simple, fun, and easy way to raise money for brain injury survivors around the UK.

This is a very special cause close to the Baxterbear team.

Pilot Baxter and owner of the very first Baxterbear (his mascot) suffered head injuries back in WW2 whilst taking photos from his plane on a photography missio.
