A brain tumour kills more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer, devastating families, yet less than 1% of government funding is devoted to research into this form of cancer. In light of this, In Sue’s Name has three main aims:
• To raise funds for research into the treatment of brain tumours
• To increase public awareness about this terrible disease and the urgent need for well-funded, sustainable research
• To bring together families and friends who have lost a loved one to brain cancer, or those who are still supporting them.
Vital research is now being carried out into treatment for brain tumours at the Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence in the Blizard Institute, part of Queen Mary University of London in Whitechapel. This gives hope to us all, but research for brain tumours remains desperately underfunded. In Sue’s Name aims to raise £1 million over the next ten years towards this vital research.
In Sue's Name is encouraging everyone to use their social media channels to ask people to vote for them to give the charity the best possible chance of winning.
Mark Hews, Group Chief Executive of Benefact Group, says: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of Benefact Group’s Movement for Good Awards for the fourth year running. We were thrilled to receive so many nominations from the public last year and this year we are encouraging even more people to nominate a good cause they love. Benefact Group, formerly named Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, is the fourth largest corporate donor in the UK and has an ambition to be the biggest. Owned by a charity, all of its available profits go to good causes, and the more the group grows, the more the group can give. As a company whose purpose is to contribute to the greater good of society, charitable giving is at the heart of what we do. Our Movement for Good Awards will continue to help charities change lives for the better and we know that for many charities, £1,000 can make a real difference.”
Movement for Good is funded by EIO plc, part of the Benefact Group.
