Charlie's Challenge

Charlie's Challenge raises money to finance urgently needed research into children's brain tumours aiming to provide better treatments for sufferers and eventually to find a cure. With no administration costs, all the money raised is spent on vital research projects vetted by a scientific and medical panel comprising experts from around the UK.

Charity Registration No. 1047876

Story

Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of UK children. More people under the age of 40 die of a brain tumour than from any other cancer. Yet brain tumour research is desperately under-funded, receiving only 1% of the national cancer research spending in the UK.

I have to admit that travelling around the British Isles on Start Me Up is not really a great hardship, although it may be quite hairy at times!

However, we are using this opportunity to draw attention to the continuing need for urgent brain tumour research to help fight brain tumours and give a few pounds to our fighting fund.

EVERY PENNY YOU GIVE WILL GO TO BRAIN TUMOUR RESEARCH. 
It is desperately needed and it will make a difference.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to Charlie's Challenge for brain tumour research and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed an every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. It's the most efficient way to donate.

So please sponsor us now.

Thank you very much.
