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.

Taylan's Project

Taylan Andrew Rawlinson was our beautiful seven year old boy who was sadly taken away from us on 19th August 2009. He was diagnosed with a very rare incurable and inoperable brain tumour located in the brain stem called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) on 24th October 2008.

"It was so frustrating over the 10 months after Taylan was diagnosed that no one was able to give us any answers or provide that breakthrough we so desperately needed. The price we had to pay was losing our beautiful and precious baby boy. We will never go back to being a `normal'' family again as Taylan is no longer with us. We miss him so much and the pain will never go away - nor will he ever be forgotten. But we feel we cannot allow this to continue and if one day an answer or cure is found, whilst it will be too late for us it may be just in time for another family. We need to start somewhere. So with the help of friends and family we founded Taylan's Project in January 2010."
