The launch of Celebrating You 2020

Celebrating You, The Brain Tumour Charity’s community awards event, returns in May 2020 and nominations are now open!

This is our chance to recognise the efforts of all those that have gone above and beyond to help us accelerate a cure for brain tumours

This awards ceremony is all about celebrating and recognising you – our tireless, dedicated and inspiring community.

Grace Latter, who won the Influencer of the Year Award in 2018, said: Celebrating You is a wonderful way to give the amazing people involved with the charity a truly deserved proper celebration. It’s a treat!”

Oliver Highway, who’s living with a glioblastoma and was nominated for The Volunteer of the Year Award, said: “It was such an inspiring night and, like us, I’m sure everyone went home with a sense of both what has been achieved and the inspiration to continue supporting The Charity in the best way they can.”

Comedian and long-time supporter of the charity, Hal Cruttenden, returns as host. Hal said: ”It was amazing to see so many fantastic people making contributions in their own way to help this admirable charity.

“A brain tumour diagnosis can make you feel alone but looking around the room that evening, I could see that we are far from it.

“The night was a huge success, celebrating everyone in the community, coming together to support each other and drive change.”

So if you’d like to tell us about your stand-out achievements, or know someone who’s been relentless in their efforts, submit your nominations in any of the categories below. Let’s celebrate the progress we’re making together.
