Our Supporter Groups
We have over 300 Supporter Groups across the UK. They all have one thing in common, they want to raise funds and awareness to change the outcomes for those affected by brain tumours both now and in the future.
Meet our Groups
Our fantastic Supporter Groups are dedicated and courageous. They work tirelessly holding events, fundraising and raising awareness.
What is a Supporter Group?
By setting up a Supporter Group you create a dedicated fund in the name of your loved one. It is a wonderful way for friends, family and colleagues to join together to do something that really matters to them.
Most groups are set up in memory of a loved one, but others are inspired by someone living with a brain tumour. We do also have some groups which are set up by a person living with a brain tumour themselves, with the hope that they can help others facing the same battle, now and in the future.
100% of the funds raised by a Supporter Group go towards our charitable objectives.
You are provided with your own Fund logo, special area on our website and much more. We look after your administrative tasks such as the legal stuff, thanking supporters and Gift Aid so that you can concentrate solely on raising much needed funds and awareness.
What our Groups do
Events and fundraising
Supporter Groups are ambitious fundraisers who choose how they wish to raise funds and when. We have seen groups hold and take part in many different fundraising ideas, below are just a few examples;
If you love a day out on the green, a charity golf day is a brilliant fundraising idea!
Make and bake sales

This is an easy way to fundraise in your community, and one that everyone can enjoy!
Why not get a team together and take on a run for The Brain Tumour Charity? Have a look at our events pages to see what is going on near you!
Find a cycling event near you or plan your own route! It doesn’t matter if you’re planning your first charity bike ride or if you have miles of experience, a cycling challenge is a great way of raising funds and awareness.
Swim like a dolphin or prefer the doggy paddle? Whether your swim is in open water or your local swimming pool, there are swimming challenges for all abilities.

Lace up your walking boots and take on a trek to raise vital funds and awareness!
Bucket collections and bag packs

Our Supporter Groups are the strongest advocates of our work, and the need for change. Together we have a much stronger voice, we would be delighted for our groups to get involved in our policy work, help raise awareness for our HeadSmart campaign and use their own stories to reach out to local and national media. Not only does this promote our cause, it also promotes the group and can encourage further support.
Our Groups offer invaluable support by volunteering at an event, such as cheering on our runners and giving out goodie bags at The Twilight Walk. Many also give talks and attend presentations to raise awareness, as well as distributing materials and sharing our work and goals. Hayley Smith, who runs The Matthew Smith Fund has been volunteering in her community and fundraising for The Charity since her husband was diagnosed with a glioblastoma in 2016.
