Hope Tree Christmas Appeal

Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer

Science and Research Saved My Life

Lily was just six when she was diagnosed with a brain tumour but thanks to science and research, she will be able to enjoy a beautiful family Christmas.

Watch Lily's story below.


Give the Gift of Hope this Christmas

Our Hope Tree Christmas Appeal invites everyone to make a donation at this special time of year in support of all of those affected by a brain tumour. Each year, our special Hope Trees take pride of place in the heart of our Research Centres of Excellence during the festive period. 

For every donation received to our appeal, you can have your own special message written on a ‘bauble of hope’ and hung on the Hope Tree at the Centre of your choice. 

How to donate to the appeal and send your message of hope

Choose which Centre you’d like your bauble to be displayed at by clicking one of the options below. Choose your donation amount and complete the text box with your short message of hope that you’d like us to write on your bauble.

If you wish to make multiple donations and hang multiple baubles at the same or more than one Centre, just repeat the process described above.

If you would like to handwrite your own message on a bauble, please contact us and we will organise to send a bauble to you. 

Please note: all donations and messages received after December 14th will be hung on the Hope Tree at Brain Tumour Research HQ in Milton Keynes.

Thank you

We are always humbled and touched by the messages of love, determination, hope and inspiration we receive at this time of year and are proud to display them as a symbol of strength and resilience against this devastating disease.
