Our Fundraising Groups

16,000 people diagnosed with a brain tumour every year

Our amazing family and fighting force of passionate groups all joining the fight against brain tumours, fundraising for vital research to get us closer to a cure.

Brain Tumour Research relies on the support of so many inspirational people, many of whom have been affected either personally by a brain tumour or who have witnessed the pain and suffering of someone close to them. These wonderful people have set up their own Fundraising Groups under our umbrella in order to raise desperately needed funds for brain tumour research.

By joining the Brain Tumour Research family, all our Fundraising Groups enjoy the security and support of a nationally recognised charity with access to a range of materials and merchandise - including fundraising packs and T-shirts - as well as marketing, PR and fundraising support, and great campaign ideas.

If you want to help by setting up your own Fundraising Group, please do not hesitate to contact the team on 01908 867200 or by email.

Sophie's Wish

Sophie's Wish was set up by the family and friends of Sophie Burchill, who was diagnosed with an aggressive ependymoma at the age of just 11 months. Sophie underwent emergency surgery to remove the tumour, followed by 16 months of chemotherapy. Whilst in and out of hospital the family witnessed many other children with brain tumours, some who were worse affected than Sophie, others who passed away.

All those involved in the Fundraising Group have been shocked to discover that diagnosis and survival rates have not moved on for at least 30 years and hope that Sophie's Wish will help to redress the balance in brain tumour research funding so that better treatments and ultimately a cure can be found.
