Fundraisers from the Crazy Hats Breast Cancer Appeal are busy raising money with a stall in Wellingborough today.

October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is the charity’s busiest month of the year and they have been out and about around the county selling their pin badges, t-shirts, trolley fobs and a range of other Crazy Hats merchandise.

All money raised will go towards buying equipment for breast cancer care at Kettering and Northampton general hospitals.

They are in the Swansgate Centre today (Friday) until 4pm, which is Wear It Pink day, and they will be at the Newlands Centre in Kettering next Wednesday.

Charity founder Glennis Hooper, of Wellingborough, said: “We have been very busy in October.

“The response in Corby was fantastic, and this is our second time in the Swansgate.”

The charity is working towards raising money for projects and equipment totalling £60,000 for Kettering General Hospital and £30,000 for Northampton General Hospital.

Miss Hooper said: “We are now replacing the equipment that the hospitals had years ago.

“We like to feel that we as a charity are making a difference and helping to buy the specialist equipment.

“But Breast Cancer Awareness Month for us is also about talking to people and listening to people’s stories.

“We have had a very enthusiastic response from people.

“Even if we have helped one lady come to terms with her breast cancer journey, we have done our job.”
