"Partnering with the Brain Tumour Research charity was a natural fit for us. It 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. We look forward to working with the charity on future initiatives." - Marc Breton, Senior Campaign Manager, Specsavers

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
Arconic Manufacturing (GB) LTD
Arconic Manufacturing (GB) LTD lost a beloved colleague to a brain tumour in 2017. In her memory, they have chosen Brain Tumour Research as their Charity of the Year for 2018, organising a variety of events throughout the year to raise money and awareness.
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.
DMH Stallard is an award-winning law firm that is passionate about client care, and the commitment to this ethos is driven from the top down. We were delighted when the firm’s staff chose Brain Tumour Research as its Charity of the Year after one of their employees’ brother was diagnosed with a brain tumour.
To date, DHM Stallard has raised over £6,000 in support of our work and during the 12 months of this partnership and we have been delighted to be able to share highlights – with both DMH Stallard partners and clients alike – of the work being carried out by our world-class scientists at our dedicated Research Centres of Excellence.
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.
