Last Sunday Gill Moore and Irene Clark, two of our amazing supporters, hosted a charity coffee and cake day in Glasgow.
Irene, who has been involved in piloting a brainstrust counselling network in Scotland, wanted to raise funds after seeing the real difference that our support has made to the lives of those living with a brain tumour and their families.
“Our coffee afternoon was great fun! Yes it was hectic, but as many of our friends and family have said, it was also a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Despite the rain and cold about 60 people came along, tucked into some fabulous cake and bought baking, preserves and raffle tickets, helping to raise the fantastic sum of £800, which was split between brainstrust and another charity. I’d recommend it to those thinking of fundraising. We will definitely be doing it again!”
Carol, our support specialist in Scotland, went along to the fundraiser, taking a Brain Box and some other brainstrust resources with her, which were well received by the guests.
“It was a really great afternoon. Delicious home-baking, great meeting and sharing our work with others and the magnificent sum raised by Irene will go to help even more people in this area living with a brain tumour.”
Thanks so much to Gill and Irene!
