Gross & Co support The Brain Tumour Charity...
Gross & Co Staff wore Bandanas on Friday 6th March to celebrate ‘Bandanas for Brain Tumours Day’ and to support The Brain Tumour Charity.
- Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40
- Over 8,500 people are diagnosed every year with a primary brain tumour including 500 children. As many brain tumours are not recorded and the figure could be much higher in reality.
- Brain tumours reduce life expectancy by, on average, 20 years – the highest of any cancer.
- Over £500million is spent on cancer research in the UK every year, yet less than 2% is spent on brain tumours.
Bandanas for Brain Tumours takes place every year to raise the profile of this charity and to raise funds to accelerate research into brain tumours.
Louise Taghi, Practice Manager, said “The Brain Tumour Charity struggles for recognition against larger, more popular causes, and this is the second year we have supported the charity to raise funds. It also brings a little fun into the workplace on a Friday in March! This year Gross & Co were delighted to be able to send a cheque for £140.80 to The Brain Tumour Charity.”
