Brain Tumour Research

We fund long-term, sustainable research to find a cure for brain tumours

Charity Registration No. England and Wales 1153487, Scotland SC046840


Simon was a keen cyclist, and post-diagnosis in 2013, a good cycle was his equivalent to counselling. He rode to many of his appointments at the BRI in Bristol from Chippenham, which was always recorded in the oncologist’s notes because it was so unusual. 

My friend Brian Walker had the idea of a cycle in Simon's memory. Over two days a group of us will cycle from Solihull - near where Simon was from - to Chippenham. 210km. Some of us are able cyclists - some of us...aren't really (me!).

The team, including support team:

  • Keith Brockway
  • Angela Calvert
  • Jon Calvert
  • Claire Coverley
  • Paul Darby
  • Gemma Durnell

Brain tumours are the leading cause of cancer death in children and in adults under 40 - yet brain tumour research receives less than 1% of national cancer funding.

Please donate in memory of Simon, and so that, one day, there is real hope for others facing this diagnosis.

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 the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
