Brain Tumour Support has launched its "Stars for Support" Christmas campaign with the aim of raising funds to enable the charity to help more families affected by a brain tumour diagnosis.
Volunteers across the country have been knitting beautiful sparkly stars for the appeal. Every time someone sponsors or buys a star, one of these lovely Stars for Support will be hung on a Christmas tree in the charity's head office in Thornbury. These stars can be dedicated in the name of someone affected by a brain tumour diagnosis.
"Whether in support or celebration, in memory or in tribute, it is a simple and personal gesture which will also help us to help others," said Tina Mitchell Skinner, founder and CEO of Brain Tumour Support. "There are more than 100,000 people in the UK living with a brain tumour. We currently support more than 2,000 of these and we urgently need to help more brain tumour patients and their families."
