Sponsor a Day

 
Could you Ďsponsor a day' of brain tumour research and help save lives?

Sheila Hancock - Actor, Author, former Chancellor of the University of Portsmouth and an amazing Ambassador for Brain Tumour Research - Sue, Sheila and me.pnglaunched the first Wall of Hope at the inaugural Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence in the University of Portsmouth in 2010. The Wall marked the launch of our mission to raise £7 million per year to fund seven 'Centres of Hope' across the UK to get closer to and ultimately find a cure for brain tumours.

To sustain the long-term peer-reviewed research at the Centres of Excellence we need to continue to provide £1 million a year in funds per centre.

Over the course of the 365 days per year, that's a target of £2,740 per day.

£1 million a year pays for a team of researchers and support staff, headed by a research fellow.  It will also help supply all material needs, such as tissue culture plastic ware, molecular & chemical reagents, serum and assay kits.

Can you or your organisation help us? Could you Sponsor a Day of research?

In return, not only are you able to say you've supported one of the most valuable cancer research causes of the age, but you get your organisation's logo and/or your event name and/or your loved one's name will be displayed on a tile on the Wall of Hope.

You could choose us as your Charity of the Year. If you succeed in raising £19,180 you could sponsor a week, with your logo appearing on each of the seven days.

You could run an annual event with proceeds going to Taylan’s Project and your logo will appear on that date each year.

If your sponsorship is in memory of a loved one, you can choose to sponsor aKaya and Altay QMUL.jpg particular date each year, which may carry a personal significance to you and your family, such as their birthday.

Placing a tile on the Wall of Hope is often integrated with a guided tour of the laboratory facilities with one of the leading Neuro-oncologists from the team.  It is a great opportunity to see the interesting and valuable research taking place in the Brain Tumour Research Centres of Excellence. You will be able to ask questions about the research and understand how the work undertaken is getting us closer to a cure.   

Each centre has its own Wall of Hope created to celebrate those who have raised funds to further research in the Centre. Each Wall has personalised tiles that denote precious and significant names and dates.

Please Sponsor a Day or as many days as you can and help us to support sustainable programmes of brain tumour research at our Centres of Excellence.  Your help is urgently needed to improve treatments and ultimately find a cure for brain tumours.

For more information about sponsoring a day (or several days) of research, placing tiles on the Wall of Hope, or a Lab Tour, please contact us. 

In addition to this, Brain Tumour Research has created a short video in which Professor Geoff Pilkington takes you on a virtual tour at the Centre in Portsmouth. We hope that this will prove informative to anybody who is interested in a lab tour.
