Hats Off For Charity Auction
8:34am 18th August 2014
It's Hats Off to raise money for two brain related charities in the lead up to this year's Bridport Hat Festival.
An auction, organised by the festival's committee will take place next week (August 28th), and some of the money raised will go towards Brain Tumour Research and The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust.
Stuart Rose, who's helping organise the events, told us that at last year's auction there was a special hat which MAY have belonged to a famous film star... " Inscribed within the hat was a name -Audrey Hepburn- it went up for auction, and in fact the person who got the hat in the end said, 'That hat look like something that was on the film 'Happy face'."
Bridport Hat Festival are asking for anyone who has a spare hat to donate it by putting it into T. Snooks hatters in West Street, Bridport.
The Auction's taking place at Bridport and West Dorset Club, 12 South Street at 7pm.
