Can you Sponsor a Day of research - or maybe more?
Research costs money
To sustain long-term peer-reviewed research at our UK Centres of Excellence, we are striving to help each of our Research Centres to raise £1 million a year.
That’s £2,740 per day, per Centre.
The funding we and our partner organisations provide helps pay for a team of specialist researchers and support staff, headed by a professor or consultant clinician.
Working at the cutting-edge of research, our researchers need a constant supply of specialist items to carry out their vital work. Our funding also helps to supply the materials and consumables that are used on a daily basis, such as disposable micropipette tips, surgical gloves, microplates, bottles of tissue culture media, serum, assay kits, etc.
Place your special tile on our Wall of Hope
Each of our Centres has a Wall of Hope on which we recognise sponsors and loved ones lost to brain tumours. When you raise £2,740, you can have a unique tile, including a special message, placed on our Wall of Hope at the Centre of your choice. You can repeat this every time you reach that milestone target.
We'll work closely with you to arrange the design of your tile/s, which typically includes the name of a loved one being remembered or treasured. And we'll help you to find the specific dates available on the Wall that you can sponsor with your tile/s – for example, a birthday or other date that has some special significance to you.
Placing a tile is often part of a guided tour of a Centre and its facilities. It is not only an
opportunity to pause, reflect and show respect but also see research in action and meet leading researcher and members of their teams.
Charity of the Year Partners Can Sponsor Days of Research
Organisations that have chosen Brain Tumour Research as their Charity of the Year often set targets to raise funds for multiple days. Indeed, if you and your colleagues collectively raise £19,180, that’s equivalent to sponsoring an entire week of vital research, which would be amazing!
This would earn your organisation seven tiles on one of our Walls of Hope, the designs of which can include your organisation's logo, the name of your fundraising event, as well as the names of any employees and/or loved ones being remembered or honoured.
And we'll work with you to find the specific dates you’d like your tiles to sponsor – for example, dates that have some special significance to you or your organisation.
In addition, we also offer a special engraved glass keepsake to display in recognition of your organisation's support.
Your help is urgently needed to improve treatments and ultimately find a cure for brain tumours. If you are interested in sponsoring a day of research and/or attending one of our lab tours, please fill out the form below.
