Our Retired Fundraising Groups

Our retired Fundraising Groups

Our Fundraising Groups are set up by families who have lost loved ones to brain tumours or have a loved one with a brain tumour diagnosis. Sometimes there comes a time when a family may wish to continue their work of raising awareness and funds, but in a less formal way.

We are grateful to all our Fundraising Groups, past and present, for the invaluable work they do within their communities to promote the brain tumour cause and make a difference in our mission to find a cure for all types of brain tumours.

The following are Fundraising Groups who have retired from active duty, but remain very much a part of our brain tumour community:

Aladdin's Lamp Fund

Sandy Foulkes set up Aladdin’s Lamp Fund in memory of beloved husband and father, Bill. Bill passed away in April 2010, thirteen months after his diagnosis with a glioblastoma multiforme. He was passionate about golf and boats and the owner of a yacht chandler’s called Aladdin’s Cave, hence the inspiration for the name of the Fundraising Group. Sandy was introduced to Prof Geoff Pilkington, who heads up research at the Brain Tumour Research centre of excellence in Portsmouth, through a mutual scientist friend and now helps Geoff out with administrative duties, as well as undertaking fundraising for Brain Tumour Research.
