Our Member Charities
16,000 people diagnosed with a brain tumour every year
In 2004, an informal partnership of a number of UK brain tumour charities came together under the banner of the United Brain Tumour Campaign. These charities worked together raising awareness and to achieve a common goal to raise funds for research into the prevention and treatment of brain tumours, as well as ultimately finding a cure.
Each of the members was galvanised into action as a result of personal involvement with brain tumours, having realised that there is relatively little being done to support brain tumour patients or carers, or towards funding research into finding a cure, compared to other more high-profile cancers.
Today, Brain Tumour Research still supports and is supported by numerous official Member Charities from across the UK that are united with us under our national banner. We embrace these collaborations and welcome any and all new Member Charities.
Our collective voice carries greater weight in media coverage and adds weight to our political campaigning action. Our Member Charities are helping us build a game-changing network of world-class Research Centres of Excellence in the UK.
James Clifford Campling Trust
The charity, James Clifford Campling Trust, based in Grimsby, was set up by family and friends of James to continue his legacy. James was an aeromedical nurse in the Royal Air Force, who passed away from a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) brain tumour in 2018, aged just 29. He had been diagnosed less than two years previously. James spent his life travelling the world and visited 82 countries, raising money for a variety of charities. In the 22 months since diagnosis, with the help of his friends, James raised £30,000 to support research into brain tumours and succeeded in ticking off all but 12 of 100 things on his bucket list.
James Clifford Campling Trust has three aims: it offers funding of up to £2,000 to people over the age of 18 with a life-changing condition to help them reach their life goals; it is setting up a retreat to support people with life-limiting illnesses and their families, and is funding research into GBMs.
