Charities we support:

We have decided to raise funds for two charities; The Big C Centre and Brain Tumour Research.

Since moving to Norwich the Big C Centre has provided Josie with an enormous amount of support. She has benefited from complementary therapies such as reflexology and massage, but most of all there is always a very friendly face and a cup of Tea! The staff at the centre are always there to listen and understand.

We are also particularly keen to raise funds for brain tumour research. Little is known about the cause of these tumours and there is currently no cure. Living with an incurable disease is extremely difficult and we hope that funding in this area will give hope to others in the future

The Big C Family Cancer Information and Support Centre (Big C Centre) is a purpose built centre based within the grounds of the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH).It is designed to provide anybody affected by cancer with information and support – complementing the local hospital and community NHS services.

In the UK more children and people under the age of 40 die of a brain tumour than any other cancer – yet brain tumour research is woefully under-funded! We aim to change that and bring better hope and care to thousands of brain tumour patients and their families. We are hoping that visitors to this site will champion our cause and help us to raise at least £7million per year to fund world class brain tumour research programmes and projects at UK universities where brain tumour research has already been established.

Other Charities we support:

ASTRO FUND WAS founded in APRIL 2001 in order to focus purely on low-grade brain tumours, and in particular

  • raise funds for research and support projects,
  • gather and share information,
  • raise awareness of the challenges of living with a low-grade brain tumour
  • and offer support to those whose lives are touched by this tumour type.
  • Hammer Out was started in March 2002 as a small fundraising group to raise awareness of brain tumours and the needs of those affected by them as well as raising money for brain and cancer related charities.

    Hammer Out is now being launched as a registered charity. While continuing to support the original aims, this will also give Hammer Out the opportunity to raise funds for very specific purposes. One such project is to establish support groups for people with brain tumours, their families and carers. The first of these groups has already been set up in the Bristol area.

    Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust was registered with the Charity Commission by Samantha’s parents, Neil and Angela in December 1996. Samantha had died of a brain tumour on 31st October 1996, just six days before her 17th birthday.
