A charity has given its website a complete overhaul to help boost its work in the fight against breast cancer.

The new Crazy Hats Breast Cancer Appeal website went live this week, and while it still needs a few small tweaks, charity founder Glennis Hooper is thrilled with the new and improved site.

Miss Hooper from Wellingborough said: “We’ve still got a lot to do on the site but it is a vast improvement on our old one.

“We want to make this more interactive and more informative.

“We are very pleased with it so far though.

“To me it’s been like writing a book – a lot of hard work has been put in to it both by us and by Mike the web designer – it’s been a learning curve with a lot more to take on board.”

The new look website features details of the charity, how it started, contact details and information about forthcoming events.

And for the first time, anyone wanting to take part in the charity’s annual sponsored walk at Wicksteed Park in Kettering on Sunday, March 23, can enter online or download an application form.

There’s also a running total for how much cash has been raised since the charity launched in 2001, which currently stands at £1,825,000.

The idea of Crazy Hats was first raised when Miss Hooper was trying on hats in Debenhams after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

She was successfully treated for the disease but wanted to continue fighting breast cancer and help improve treatment for people affected by it in the county.

The charity has gone from strength to strength since then, with all cash raised going towards improving care at both Kettering and Northampton general hospitals.
