Kettering and District Caledonian Society

Patron: Duke of Buccleugh K.B.E.

All of the money we make from our various charity events  is donated to local charities, mainly Crazy Hats :-

Crazy Hats is a unique local charity that was first established back in 2001 when its founder, former head teacher Glennis Hooper, was diagnosed with breast cancer at a very significant time in her life.  Glennis has an amazing story to tell about her life, and that of thousands of others, since a simple, crazy idea became a reality whilst trying on hats on in Debenhams in Northampton when she was on chemotherapy.

Crazy Hats supports all aspects of breast cancer care in Northamptonshire with a small percentage of funds being given to Leicester Royal Infirmary. 

With an initial donation of £5.00 from an 86 year old lady who had breast cancer at the same time as Glennis, the current total now stands at over £2 million pound.  Should you wish to know more Crazy Hats has a very good website.
