We help the brain tumour community to feel less alone and more in control


Peter, co founder and force majeure of brainstrust, sadly died on August 31st with his wife and sister in law by his side, just as the sun rose over the Solent. Peter was like no other - he had a meticulous eye for detail, whilst keeping the wider goal always in his sight. He was gentle, gallant, and had grit. He lived his values through to his final days - never complaining, always gracious and humbling in spirit.

With Helen, and a small group of family Trustees, Peter founded brainstrust following the shock brain tumour diagnosis for his step-daughter, Meg. The Charity succeeded in its early goals of raising funds and securing treatment to save Meg’s life. It has gone from strength to strength since. brainstrust now works nationally to support thousands of people navigate a brain tumour diagnosis, to inform policy and practice at the highest levels and to bring people with a brain tumour closer to research. Peter’s commitment and contribution to brainstrust's growth has been nothing short of astonishing with his influence fostering a great team culture, impeccable governance and first-class financial track-record.
