Cricket Scotland 'Beanies 4 Brain Tumours' Charity Fundraising Campaign

16 Mar 2019

Cricket Scotland and The Brain Tumour Charity have launched the #Beanies4BrainTumours fundraising campaign. 

What is #Beanies4BrainTumours?

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 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.

Why is Cricket Scotland doing this?

In 2018, news of Scotland all-rounder Con de Lange’s brain tumour was made public. 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.

How to take part?

Contact Forfarshire 1st XI captain Umair Mohammed to confirm your order for a special beanie. The Forfarshire version will be blue with the club crest, priced at £14 each. The order deadline is short - please contact Umair this weekend (16/17 March) if you wish to take part.
