The Brain Tumour Charity has been Major Family Law's adopted charity for over 3 years and we continue to support it with a programme of events throughout the year including our annual rounders event. We've done pretty well so far and are delighted to have raised over £20,000. Many thanks for all of your generosity and please do visit our sister link at: justgiving.com/joanne-major1 to see our progress.
In 2018-19, however, we're planning to aim high and give a bigger push than ever to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity. Members of Major Family Law organized our 4th annual Rounders Event in September 2018 - a hugely competitive and fun 'knock out' style team game - which raised in excess of £5,500; conduct 2 table top sales the first of which raised over £400; our colleague (and office Mo Farah!), Sam Carter ran the Kielder Marathon on Sunday 7th October raising £1000 and Andrew and Joanne are to undertake a grueling trek across the Sahara desert in February 2019. Joanne Major aspires to be the first woman to complete the trek in her signature high heels!
Our own personal journey over the last 4 years has been a difficult trek through the landscape of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Each year 3000 folk are diagnosed in the UK with aggressive brain cancer, commonly known as a glioblastoma. Just 3% survive to 3 years. We therefore feel blessed our family is defeating those odds and we welcome these challenges.
Please support us raising money for this fantastic cause committed to find a cure to the biggest cancer killer to those under 40 which is only recently making progress to get the funding it deserves thanks to Baroness Tessa Jowell and other high profile supporters.
