Host for Hope - Your Summer Get Together


Everybody loves a good get-together; simply gather some friends, grab some grub and enjoy!

Help us get closer to a cure this Summer by hosting a coffee morning, afternoon tea, BBQ or dinner party for Brain Tumour Research.

It's easier than ever to get involved! Simply follow these three top tips to make your event a success:

  1. Set a fundraising target -- Aim for £300 and you will be funding all the pipettes, solutions and dishes needed for one day of research at any one of our Centres of Excellence. Simply sell tickets for your event and hold a raffle or auction!
  2. Ask a favour -- Whether you’re asking for food, drink, raffle prizes or venue hire – you’ll be surprised how generous people and companies will be when you tell them why you are holding your event.
  3. Shout about it! -- Create a Facebook event; display posters at your school/workplace/club; share your story with the local press and add your JustGiving link to your email footer. There are so many ways to capture people’s imagination and ask for delicious donations.

Whatever plans you’re cooking up, the following materials – posters, recipes, menu cards, place settings, invitations and press release templates – can all be downloaded directly from this page.

Getting the media involved

Most of the fundraising events people hold for us come about because of personal experiences with or connections to someone who has been affected by a brain tumour. It’s these stories which when featured in local news truly inspire people to donate and motive others to get involved and help fund the fight.

No matter where you’re based, the local media are always interested in a good news story where an individual or group has raised money for vital research.

So here are some templates for use in getting your message out there to the media. Simply edit and delete where indicated on these templates, then save and send to your local newspaper, TV or radio station. A quick search on Google should help you find the relevant contacts for media in your area.
