CHARITY

Lock & Co. is a small family business that strongly believes in social responsibility. That’s why each year we donate to charities close to our hearts. The charities we have chosen are ones where we know our support can make a real difference. Please follow the links to hear their stories.

BRAIN TUMOUR RESEARCH

Brain Tumour Research is the only national charity in the UK that is dedicated to raising funds for continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours. Scientists at dedicated Brain Tumour Research Centres of Excellence work tirelessly to gain a deeper understanding of brain tumours to get closer to a cure.  

Brain Tumour Research has been a recipient of monetary donations from Lock & Co. Hatters for many years and our staff are committed to raising money through additional fundraising events. 

Lock & Co. are honoured to have worked with the wonderful pupils and teachers of Blakesley Primary School, Northamptonshire, for Wear A Hat Day. Each pupil learned from members of the team at Lock’s about the history of hats and how they are made, and then had the opportunity to design, make, and trim their own hats, using their own imagination and inspiration! A selection of the fabulous creations by the pupils of Blakesley Primary School were displayed in the shop at Lock & Co., 6 St. James’s Street in the week leading up to Wear A Hat Day.  

This year in partnership with The Worshipful Company of Feltmakers, Lock & Co. hosted an all-day event at the shop at No. 6 St. James’s Street. As part of our event, world-renowned British Milliners from the Worshipful Company of Feltmakers livery, plus Awon Golding and Lock & Co. Hatters donated 15 gorgeous hats for a very special prize draw, celebrating the 15th anniversary of Brain Tumour Research and help raise vital funds for Brain Tumour Research. Wear a hat day seeks to raise much needed funds for the Brain Tumour Research charity.
