Clarion Housing Group
We are delighted to partner with the UK's largest housing group, Clarion Housing Group. Darel Bryan worked for Clarion and sadly died from a brain tumour, aged just 34. Darel's partner, Natalie, founded our Fundraising Group The Darel Bryan Foundation with Brain Tumour Research. Clarion staff voted overwhelmingly in 2017 to support Darel's memory and help fund for our cause, pledging to raise £100,000 over three years.
"Staff voted overwhelmingly to support Brain Tumour Research. We promised we would do everything we could to make our fundraising a success, including matching every pound that was raised by staff. So I was thrilled to present a cheque for a staggering £80,000 for Brain Tumour Research." - Ruth Cooke, Chief Executive, Clarion Housing Group

After losing several members of their family to brain tumours, founders of the ethical hat brand KuSan were inspired to design two special bobble hats knitted in our brand colours to add to their range, along with a selection of branded bobble hat keyrings. The hats are being launched into the trade for the UK winter clothing season in September 2018.
The bobble hats will be available from good independent retailers across the country and online from www.hatsandcaps.co.uk. For a list of stockists or to buy directly, visit www.kusan.co.uk. KuSan will contribute £4 from every hat sold and all the proceeds from the sale of the keyrings will help fund our work, which includes game-changing research at our UK Centres of Excellence.
The keyrings can be bought exclusively from the Brain Tumour Research eBay store for £5 each.
In collaboration with the University of Plymouth, home to one of our Research Centres of Excellence, Plymouth Citybus launched a specially branded double-decker bus, raising awareness and funds for Brain Tumour Research as it travels throughout the region over the next few years. The bus helped launch Wear A Hat Day 2018 and will be used at other key fundraising events.
Specsavers were the official sponsor for Wear A Hat Day 2018 and 2019. They have run an imaginative array of different fundraising events across their various branches all over the UK. The partnership increased the profile of both our brands on Twitter during the campaign with many tweets tagging us and enjoying the Specsavers' staff participating in their fundraising activities.
"Our activity with Brain Tumour Research enabled us to promote the role of eye care in the diagnosis of brain tumours, but in an engaging and fun way that was straightforward for our store teams and customers to get involved in." - Marc Breton, Senior Campaign Manager, Specsavers

Established in 1999 by Amanda Coulson, SVC Group quickly grew from a trusted, local recruiter into an award-winning company. The business has steadily expanded, offering additional services and expertise with four key divisions and operating companies which provide: Professional Recruitment; Training, Development & Coaching; Human Resources and Health and Safety.
Known for their personal values, these have shaped the way SVC works with clients, candidates and of course with each other. The human touch is woven throughout the business. Our staff recently voted Brain Tumour Research as Charity of the Year in memory of Debbie Coulson, Amanda’s much-loved sister who lost her fight last summer, after being diagnosed with a Grade 4 Glioblastoma. We will come together to walk, bake and cycle during the next 12 months raising funds for much-needed research.
"Never did I imagine being in the position we were in when my sister Debbie was diagnosed with a brain tumour, but Brain Tumour Research was there for us when we really needed it, providing us with all the advice, guidance and support that we required at such a difficult time. I wholeheartedly admire the hard work and dedication of this fantastic charity which has inadvertently become a huge part of my life. These are just some of the reasons we have chosen Brain Tumour Research as our company ‘charity of the year'" - Amanda Coulson, CEO & Founder
Visual Realms Ltd
We are very grateful to Milton Keynes-based Visual Realms Ltd who donated their expertise and visual reality technology to create an enthralling 3D 360° virtual tour of our Centre of Excellence within the University of Plymouth. It provides our supporters and potential corporate partners with an exciting virtual experience and fascinating insights into the research being carried out there.
Visual Realms worked pro bono on the project. Managing director, Iain Row, said: “Our photo-quality 3D models look great on any website, but you can also combine them with Google Cardboard, Google Daydream or Samsung VR goggles for a fully-immersive experience. It’s like being there, even if ‘there’ is thousands of miles away.
“We pride ourselves on being able to create virtual tours in difficult and sensitive environments. Capturing the lab tour at Plymouth was a good fit for us as although it’s no replacement for actually visiting, it shows the quality of what’s already there. We were delighted to be helping a very worthy cause."
