Hawkins residents wear a beanie for a good cause2 Jul 2021
We’re continuously inspired by our residents and staff, who are always so willing to lend a hand to causes that they are passionate about and that benefit the communities in which we operate.
We recently held a fundraiser to support the Mark Hughes Foundation’s Beanie Day in our RFBI Hawkins Masonic Village (located in Edgeworth, Newcastle). The Mark Hughes Foundation has close ties to our community there and was formed to raise funds to promote research, raise awareness and provide support to brain cancer patients.
Together, our staff and residents raised $405 towards this important cause and also sold $465 worth of beanies for the foundation. Even our CEO, Frank Price, joined in by wearing a beanie himself.
Many brain cancer patients wear beanies to cover scars, bandages, loss of hair and just to keep warm, so we’re proud to wear one too to show our support.
