Children from the sister schools of Anthony Curton Primary in Walpole St Peter and Tilney All Saints, collectively raised £150 to support Bandana For Brain Tumours Day.

A family in one of the schools was affected by the impact of brain tumours, and the two schools rallied round to raise funds for the charity.

Children and staff came to school sporting special bandanas or bad hair, and paid £1 to the charity for the privilege.

Brain Tumour Support is the only brain tumour charity dedicated to giving specialist, tailored services for anyone affected by any type of brain tumour.

A charity spokesman said; “We are here to support not just patients themselves, but also families, carers and loved ones who are dealing day to day with the impact of a brain tumour diagnosis.

“The origins of the charity lie in one family’s own devastating experience of a brain tumour diagnosis.

“A tough journey but one which resulted in the pioneering support work which Hammer Out has delivered for the past ten years and now continues under the new identity of Brain Tumour Support.

“Through the hard work of its team and the dedication of supporters and fund raisers, the charity now runs support groups from Cornwall to Staffordshire and employs dedicated patient family support workers, specialist counsellors and a fund raising team.

“Our aim has always been that no-one feels alone in their experience of coping with a brain tumour. Moving forward with our new name we intend this will be the reality for more people as the charity grows and expands.”
