We raise funds for St George's Hospital to improve outcomes in neurosurgery


21 People are diagnosed with a brain tumour in England

21: often known as the Key to Life; is our theme to create a range of fun activities - linked in any way to the number 21 - to raise vital funds and make a positive difference to the lives of many brain tumour patients – all culminating on the 21st June annually.

Richard Sullivan, the inspiration behind Project21ForLife, was discharged from St Georges on 21-12-21 following treatment for his recently diagnosed brain tumour. Grateful for the outstanding treatment provided by the surgeons at St George’s Hospital, Tooting, and the ongoing excellent care at the Royal Marsden - and mindful that less than 3% of cancer research funding annually is allocated to brain tumour cancers - Richard is determined to make a difference. 

The establishment of this annual fundraising event, Project21ForLife, is one that absolutely everyone can take part in! All that’s needed are fun ideas, done solo or with family, friends, or colleagues at work, to raise funds; however large or small - centred around the 21st June annually. 

What will you do …? Run 21 miles? Bake 21 cakes? Hold a sport or quiz competition with 21 teams or for 21 hours? The opportunities are as endless as the creativity of the human brain…

Join us. Together we can make a big difference and have huge fun! You can also donate at :
