About Helen Martin’s Legendary Hat Collection

Helen was lively, colourful, and adventurous – much like her legendary collection of more than 100 dress hats! Before Helen died on December 28th, 2015 at the age of 80, she generously bequeathed her stunning hat collection to Victoria Hospice. All proceeds from this event will support quality end-of-life care at Victoria Hospice.
