Brain Tumour fundraising

Above: baldy man of last week’s blog has gone..a bit to go yet

Friends and acquaintances who have followed the progress of  the Spinathon for brain tumour research will be delighted to know that we have already beaten the  £2500 target set for the day and with £3500 RAISED as I write it would be tremendous if we could treble the original £2500 target to £7500 by Close of  the event  on Sarurday evening.

Thanks to everyone who so generously contributed. I really believe that your money has gone to a worthwhile cause.

Spinathon with at least one person spinning right through the day.

This is a hugely underfunded area which badly  needs your help. There is worldwide research closely monitored with amazing co-operation and I was on one of the trials… It nearly killed me (terminally ill anyway)

Too late for me, but in the time I have left. believe me I will use every opportunity to encourage people to support this worthy cause. I will almost certainly NOT survive because of this effort but if others in future…. ESPECIALLY YOUNG PEOPLE are cured then it would be so good.

Well organized and funded research WILL find a cure as it has for many other forms of cancer.
So what can you do? You can come to the Hilton for part or all of the day. You can use the link to contribute to the event online. Go to the Brain Tumour research web site and be impressed. (Of course spinning or cycling is not obligatory, you can just come and enjoy meeting people)

To donate:

You can share this post with others or give a gift aided contribution. Contact Sarah at

Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer… yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.
