RAISING AWARENESS... of brain tumours and the need for research

We need to increase public awareness of brain tumours if we are to raise desparately needed funds for brain tumour research.

For media enquiries please contact Sue Farrington Smith at Brain Tumour Research on 01296 733011 or email sue@braintumourresearch.org.  We can provide information, expert quotes and case-studies on brain tumour related issues.

Journalists with an urgent out of office enquiry should contact: 07850 832301 (there is no message service available on this number but please text your name and contact details and you will be contacted as soon as possible) or 07887 732881. 

Make your voice heard in the media.

Most of the fundraising events people hold for us come about because of personal experiences with or connections to someone who has been affected by a brain tumour. It’s these stories which when featured in local news truly inspire people to donate and motive others to get involved and help fund the fight.

No matter where you’re based, the local media are always interested in a good news story where an individual or group has raised money for vital research.

So here are some templates for use in getting your message out there to the media. Simply edit and delete where indicated on these templates, then save and send to your local newspaper, TV or radio station. A quick search on Google should help you find the relevant contacts for media in your area.

Pre-event: In Memoriam / Inspired By / Patient
Post-event: In Memoriam / Inspired By / Patient

Don’t hesitate to get in touch via email or call us on 01296 733011 should you need any more information about regional media.
