Xiel Limited Choose Charity of the Year – Brain Tumour Research
Xiel Ltd have chosen Brain Tumour Research as our Xiel Charity of the Year.
Xiel hope to promote awareness of the disease through activities throughout the year to raise money and publicity for this incredibly important research work to continue.
Who is at Risk of Brain Cancer?
In the UK, more than 11,000 people are diagnosed with a primary brain tumour each year, and in approximately half of these cases the tumour is cancerous.
Brain tumours can affect people at any age, they are totally indiscriminate. More children and adults under the age of 40 are killed by brain tumours than any other cancer however, out of the total national spend on cancer research, just 1% is allocated to this devastating disease.
Brain Tumour Research – Wear a Hat Day
Xiel are taking part in the ‘Wear a Hat Day’ brain tumour research fundraising to start our fundraising for the year. We took this picture of our staff wearing hats last week to mark ‘Wear a Hat Day’ today. We will be raising money throughout the year through home baked cake sales and collecting money at all opportunities!
