Join us for 'Wear a Hat Day' on Friday 29th March

Join us for Wear A Hat Day on Friday 29th March! The Premier Brain Tumour Awareness event in the UK; helping to support long-term, life-saving research.


Startlingly one in 50 people who die under the age of 60 years do so from brain cancer. Just as shockingly, 71% of those who die of a brain tumour will be under 75 years old, compared to 47% for all cancers.
Despite this, brain cancer continues to receive less than 1% of the national spend on cancer research. 


Brain Tumour Research has a mission to raise £7 million a year to fund world-class, sustainable and continuous scientific research into all types of brain tumours in seven centres of excellence across the UK. These centres will work together sharing knowledge locally, nationally and internationally to find a cure for brain tumours whilst educating the next generation of leading neuro-oncologists.


Caltag Medsystems would like to help this charity raise as much money as possible. Don a hat for the day, take a photo and post it on our Facebook page (Caltag Medsystems).


We’ll donate £1 towards brain tumour research for every photo posted (braintumourresearch.org).

Locked Away

The team at Caltag Medsystems were challenged to test our detective skills and took part in UK’s largest escape room called ‘Locked In A Room’. We were divided into 3 teams at random and locked in a room faced with a non-physical, yet exhilarating, completely immersive race against the clock. Cryptic clues, tests and puzzles stretched our usual thought processes to allow us to escape within 60 minutes. We demonstrated our great teamwork and all 3 teams escaped within the required timeframe, the fastest having 1min 25secs to spare. A great evening was had by all.

Collection for Young Carers Bucks

This year over Christmas, a group decision was made to forgo the office “Secret Santa”, and instead donate to a local charity. We were proud to raise £300 for Young Carers Bucks. They support 6-18 year olds who care for someone in their own home who is ill, has a physical or mental disability, or drug or alcohol dependency.  A truly worthy cause.
