Hats On for Hydrocephalus 

You can support Shine this year by holding a Hats On for Hydrocephalus event:

  1. Choose a day and invite your colleagues to come into work, or work from home, wearing their favourite headwear.
  2. Choose a suggested amount and ask each person for a donation. They can bring cash into work or you can set up a JustGiving page to collect your donations online. Set up your JustGiving page here or get in touch for advice.

Why we need your support 

"Shine has made a difference to my life as, without them, I’m unsure that I would have been given the knowledge and understanding that I have now."

Before Jim reached out to Shine, he felt like his Hydrocephalus was never taken seriously by the people around him. After meeting his Shine Support and Development Worker, Jim felt that he had someone to speak to who understood his condition. He was given lots of information and advice and feels that Shine have made a real difference to his life.
