Brain Tumour Research: events

Children's sponsored walk and fun day

Bouncy castles, face painting, stalls, games, and a penalty shoot-out can be experienced in support of brain tumour research on Sunday 9 July at The Brickfields in Plymouth.

The fun day includes a children's sponsored walk and has been organised to raise funds for the charity Brain Tumour Research and in support of two-year-old Archie McConnell who is currently undergoing treatment for a brain tumour.

Will we see you there?

Land's End to John O'Groats on two wheels

Tackling 70 miles in 14 days on two wheels, Stuart Ryall aims to raise £5,000 to support the world-leading brain tumour research here.

Stuart is adding to the amazing total being raised in memory of a loved colleague, John McMahon, who lost his life to a brain tumour. Funds raised will support a PhD student in Professor Hanemann's lab.

Lab tours

Throughout the year we host a series of research laboratory tours. It's an opportunity to see the labs and ask questions to the scientists who undertake our world-leading research.

Visitors will be looked after by our regional Brain Tumour Research representative and shown the ‘Wall of Hope’, created to celebrate those who help fund the research, recognised by personalised plaques and significant dates. Each plaque represents £2,740 raised – which is the running cost per day of the laboratories.

Whether you are already a fundraiser or would like to be, or just have an interest in the amazing research that happens here, please get in touch to book a place on a tour.
