President's Charity 2017/18
Each year our President chooses a charity close to her heart to support and Circles from all across the UK fundraise and also raise awareness of the charity.
This year’s President, Ginette May, has chosen The Brain Tumour Charity to support and has set the challenge of raising £20,000 to help fund research.
For Circlers looking to raise money for the charity please contact Gemma firstname.lastname@example.org
The Brain Tumour Charity is the UK's largest dedicated brain tumour charity, committed to fighting brain tumours on all fronts.
They fund pioneering research to increase survival and improve treatment options and raise awareness of the symptoms and effects of brain tumours to get earlier diagnosis and to help families cope with everything that the diagnosis of a brain tumour brings. They also provide support for everyone affected so that they can live as full a life as possible, with the best quality of life.
The charity funds and promotes the UK-wide HeadSmart Campaign, raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of brain tumours in children and young people to make earlier diagnosis a reality. Earlier diagnosis will reduce long term disabilities and save lives. In just three years, HeadSmart has reduced average diagnosis time from 9.1 weeks to 6.7 weeks.
