Donate Now

Lyra Cole, aged six, who was diagnosed with a brain tumour when she was a baby, has released a wonderful charity Christmas single to help find a cure for the disease.

She and her family know all too well the pain of a brain tumour diagnosis. Lyra was just five months old when she underwent emergency surgery to remove her tumour - which was the size of an orange. Within months Lyra was struggling to see and underwent a second procedure a year later which thankfully restored her sight.

Jessie, Lyra’s aunt told us: “We chose the track When a Child is Born because I think it will really resonate with people and I hope that when they listen and see the video they will think about everything Lyra has been through and make a donation to give hope to families who, like us, know the devastation caused by a brain tumour.”

By donating to help Brain Tumour Research this Christmas, you will also be giving hope to all families affected by this devastating disease. 

You can also stream and purchase the song on Amazon and Spotify– all proceeds after covering costs will be donated to Brain Tumour Research.


Gift Aid Declaration

I confirm I am a UK tax payer and I agree to Brain Tumour Research claiming tax on all past present and future donations I make to the charity.

By ticking this box I am confirming I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and / or Capital Gains Tax for each year (6th April to 5th April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year.

I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify.

I understand that Brain Tumour Research will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give on or after 6th April 2008.
