£435raised of £500 target by 14 supporters

Weʼre raising £500 to go towards the Brig-Aid campaign to raise funds for Sarah's cancer treatment

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Derby Theatre's inspirational and incredibly talented Artistic Director and CEO Sarah Brigham has been diagnosed with a rare form of cancer in her windpipe, which cannot be operated on and will not respond to radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

The best option for treatment now is Carbon Ion Therapy, which will hopefully stop the cancer from growing or spreading and may offer the best long term prognosis. However, this treatment cannot be funded by the UK health service and the best place Sarah can get this treatment is in Germany.

We need to raise £60,000 so she can receive this treatment.

You can read more about the central fundraising campaign here.

To support the campaign I have entered the Derby Half Marathon, my first competitive half marathon for a very long time. I am old and it will be flaming June, so please generously and help make a difference for Sarah.

Thank you.
