Lions Clubs International (MD105) British Isles is working in partnership with Brain Tumour Research to raise £1 million over four years to help fund game-changing research and raise awareness of the impact of brain tumours.
Brain Tumour Research is dedicated to raising funds for continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours. It supports one of the UK’s largest collaborative groups of laboratory-based scientists.
Brain Tumour Research is the only national charity in the UK dedicated to raising funds for continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours and is a leading voice calling for greater support and action for research into what scientists are calling the last battleground against cancer.
