APPGBT July 2019 - Invite Your MP
National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £30-35 million a year
Please ask your MP to attend the Annual General Meeting of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Brain Tumours (APPGBT)
It is especially important that MPs attend this meeting, as their presence is necessary to ensure the APPGBT can complete the various administrative formalities necessary for the Group to continue as a forum for the brain tumour community within Parliament.
You can help by inviting your MP to the AGM of the APPGBT, which takes place on Tuesday 16th July 2019.
It's also an opportunity to bring together MPs and their constituents, as well as researchers and clinicians, to discuss and raise awareness of the issues affecting brain tumour patients and their families.
Please send an email to your MP and please forward any responses to firstname.lastname@example.org

I hope you can attend the Annual General Meeting of the APPG on Brain Tumours on Tuesday 16th July 2019, from
The APPGBT has had a busy year, publishing the findings of its Inquiry into the economic and social impacts of brain tumours, questioning the leadership of the Tessa Jowell Brain Cancer Mission and hearing about the latest innovative therapies.
I do hope you can attend the meeting, if only for the beginning portion, as your presence will help ensure the APPGBT can fulfil the various administrative requirements of an AGM, which means the Group can continue representing the brain tumour community within Parliament for another year.
This APPGBT meeting has been organised by the Brain Tumour Research charity, which provides the Secretariat.
Please include your name and address, including postcode – MPs can only respond to those living within their own constituencies.
