About The Smile of Arran Trust
The Smile of Arran Trust is a children's brain tumour charity that was set up in memory of an extraordinary and inspiring young man Arran Tosh who lost his life to a brain tumour at age 13
In furthering the charities objects, we have partnered with two national charities. Firstly to provide funding for brain tumour and brain cancer research, the Brain Tumour Charity has created the Smile of Arran Fund that supports pioneering research to find new treatments, improve understanding, increase survival rates and bring us closer to a cure.
Our primary goal is to provide financial assistance to children and their families that have been affected by a brain tumour.
It is only in going through the trauma of losing a child to a brain tumour that you begin to understand some of the diverse issues surrounding children and families affected by brain tumours or brain cancer.
To this end, our partnership with Young Lives Vs Cancer and the Arran’s Grant, is to provide financial assistance to children and their families whose life has been affected by a brain tumour.
We additionally support local communities by providing funding for Music Therapy at Addenbrooke's hospital, Cambridge and the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity.
The Smile of Arran is now dedicated to fundraising and awarding grants for music therapy to assist children's recovery in hospital
