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 £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.
This year, 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 are proposing to organize our 4th annual Rounders Event - a hugely competitive and fun 'knock out' style team game - now becoming a highlight in the NE business calendar; conduct 2 table top sales; organize a coffee morning; run the Kielder Marathon and undertake a grueling trek across the Sahara desert early 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.
