Fundraise for us


Without amazing people like you, our research simply couldn't happen. 

For 25 years, our world-leading researchers and clinicians at the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre have been working tirelessly to stop brain tumours from shattering the lives of children and their families. Though diagnosis times have halved, there is much more yet to do.

How you can help

With your support, we can continue working on innovative new treatments to help give children with brain tumours the bright future they deserve. Whether you're a regular fundraiser or a first timer, there are lots of fun and easy ways you can raise money to support CBTRC and we’re here to help every step of the way.

Fundraising stories to inspire you


Meet Emma

Emma raised funds for CBTRC after her grandmother, Iris, died last year. Iris was passionate about supporting children with brain tumours, so Emma ran the Great North Run in her memory.

She raised over £600 to help give children with brain tumours the bright future they deserve.
