Two Norwich opticians are set to doff their caps to Brain Tumour Research by raising vital funds for the charity during Wear A Hat Day on March 29.

The Specsavers stores in White Lion Street and St Stephens Street will join stores nationwide to officially sponsor the charity for the first time and help raise awareness that routine eye tests can detect signs of brain tumours.

Ian Sinha, store director at the Specsavers stores in Norwich, said: “Many people are unaware that eye tests are not only critical for your eyes, but your wider health too.

“A routine test allows opticians to detect serious issues that can be both sight and, in some cases, life threatening – including brain tumours.”

Wear A Hat Day has raised over £1m since it was launched by the charity Brain Tumour Research nine years ago. To get involved or donate, please visit www.wearahatday.org or text HAT to 70660 to donate £5.
