Recycle & Declutter
Are you really keen on recycling or desperate to declutter? There are several approved sites which allow you to get rid of your unwanted items whilst donating money to Brain Tumour Research. So, for example, if you’ve replaced your mobile phone recently, you can donate your old model, even if it’s broken, by registering with www.recycle4charity.co.uk follow the instructions to set up a donation to Brain Tumour Research and we’ll automatically receive £30 per mobile.

Pennies make Pounds

Derek Rose, a brain tumour patient from Shenfield in Essex is a fabulous ambassador for Brain Tumour Research. In his business – Roses Bakery – he displays our posters and helps to spread awareness of this dreadful disease to his customers and the desperate need for much more research. In doing so he has successfully managed to raise hundreds of pounds just from the polyboxes on the counter in his bakery. Thank you Derek.
Send an email to Sarah@braintumourresearch.org if you can help us place a collection box in your area.
