Raising Funds For Brain Tumour Research
Realising that very little funding is received for research into brain tumours; following his surgery in April 2015, they embarked on a series of fund-raising events to benefit the Brain Tumour Charity and The Fire Fighters Charity, who supported Mark, as a serving fire fighter and his family through his recuperation, raising in excess of £10,000 for these two charities.
Since then, the charity has moved forward, and in addition to raising funds for research into brain tumours, the Wight Brainy Bunch also donate to Smile4Wessex (The Wessex Neurological Centre in Southampton). This is where Mark underwent his craniotomy, and where the majority of Isle of Wight patients will be treated following diagnosis, so by supporting this charity we can be sure Isle of Wight families will continue to benefit.
The Wight Brainy bunch also hold a monthly support group, where they provide a support network, offering emotional and financial assistance to families on the Isle of Wight who have been affected by brain tumours… something which they found through their own experience was distinctly lacking on the Island.
