Anna Soubry MP supports Headcase and Brain Tumour Research
Junior Health Minister Anna Soubry, MP for Broxtowe attended member charity, Headcase Cancer Trust’s ‘Red or Black Ball’ on Saturday 14th September. She is pictured here with Brain Tumour Research Chief Executive, Sue Farrington Smith (left), Headcase Cancer Trust founder Colin Speirs (right, resplendent in his kilt!) and Professor Geoff Pilkington who leads the UKs largest brain tumour research team at our Centre of Excellence in the University of Portsmouth.
We are grateful to Anna for her belief in our cause and active engagement in Brain Tumour Research parliamentary activity, attending our receptions and events when she can. Anna is a loyal supporter of Headcase which is based in her constituency. She says: “Headcase Cancer Trust is a fantastic charity and I fully support everything that they and their fellow charities are trying to do to increase funding for research into brain tumours – a most devastating disease.” Donations and pledges from the Ball will take some time to be fully counted but it’s likely to be a healthy five-figure sum!
Brain Tumour Research is the only national charity in the UK that grants 100% of funds to continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours. Our research team work tirelessly to glean new layers of understanding about this disease and are continuously publishing peer-reviewed results in leading international scientific journals.
As a member charity, Headcase Cancer Trust supports our strategy and is the only charity in the UK that dedicates its funding solely to research to find a cure for Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM), one of the most common and deadly forms of brain tumour.
