Charities

Brain Tumour Research

Brain Tumour Research represents the united campaign voice of the Brain Tumour Research group of charities.  Established in 2008, the charity Brain Tumour Research was launched specifically to raise substantial funds for brain tumour research and operates as a separate entity to the member charities.

Originally set up in 2004 as an informal partnership of a number of UK brain tumour charities under the banner of the United Brain Tumour Campaign, these charities committed themselves to working together to achieve a common goal, namely to raise funds for research into the prevention and treatment of brain tumours, as well as ultimately finding a cure.

Craig is a patron of Brain Tumour Research.  Being an athlete he really understands how important the brain is and has been shocked to discover how woefully underfunded research into brain tumours is, despite the numbers affected.  The fact that he is able to support a local charity in this way makes the connection even more special.
