More funding will save more lives

Our aim is to find a cure for all child brain tumours and to reduce the disability caused by them. Although our research is progressing, we need more funding to make the most of the scientific knowledge we are uncovering. So far, the University’s development campaign has made a great start, but we need to raise more money to save more lives. And there are a number of ways in which you can help..

One day at a time – will you take the 365 Day Challenge?

Every day of research at Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre (CBTRC) and centres like it brings us one step closer to progressing brain tumour research in the UK to a point where we can make a clinical difference.

We need £1,500 to fund a day’s research at the CBTRC. Our challenge is to find 365 supporters each willing to support a day of research to give us an entire year of funding ─ a year which could make all the difference.

If 365 people each raise £1,500 we would achieve our research target for 2013

If you’re one of the special individuals or groups willing to take the 365 Day Challenge then please let us know immediately. We’ll help you in any way we can.


  • 450 children are diagnosed with a brain tumour every year
  • Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of UK children
  • Brain tumours account for 6 per cent of all cancers yet receive less than 1 per cent of the UK’s cancer research funding

Over the past two decades national survival rates have increased from 50 per cent to 70 per cent. Although this is a huge step forward the risk of disability remains high for many children and for some, the risks of survival remain low. So could you play your part today, could you support a day of research?
