Taking a hit in aid of Brain Tumour Research

April 11, 2018

 

BMC Security proudly supported Jon Durrant, of Durrant's Gym and The Big Fight UK, for a white collar charity event in aid of Brain Tumour Research.

 

Following ten weeks of training with a professional coach, white collar sponsors fight it out in the ring at the prestigious Porchester Hall.

 

 

 

The Brain Tumour Charity, as it is today, was created after the merging of Brain Tumour UK, Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust and the Joseph Foote Trust in 2013.

 

The Samantha Dickson Brain Tumour Trust was started by Neil and Angela Dickson in 1996, who lost their daughter, Samantha, to a brain tumour when she was just 16 years old. They had become aware of the lack of properly funded research into this cancer and were determined to try and remedy the situation.


 

 

Andy Foote founded The Joseph Foote Fund in 2007 after losing his son, Joseph, to a brain tumour. The Foote family began raising funds for research into the causes and treatment of brain tumours – in its 12-year history The Joseph Foote Trust raised more than £2million.

 

 

In 1997, the UK Brain Tumour Society was founded, which later became Brain Tumour UK.

 

The Brain Tumour Charity has grown rapidly since the merging, funding a diverse portfolio of research programmes, projects and clinical trials across the UK.
