Boost for Brain Tumour Research

Charity fundraiser

Wear a hat day cheque

Fundraising efforts by school pupils and council staff across North Lanarkshire have raised £4,350 for Brain Tumour Research.

The pupils and staff took part in a variety of fundraising activities to raise the much needed funds, including participating in the charity's 'Wear a hat day', taking part in a special photo booth with their hats and organising coffee mornings and bake sales.

Provost of North Lanarkshire Jean Jones, who helped coordinate many of the fundraising activates said: "I would like to thank everyone who helped raise such a fantastic sum of money.

"Our school pupils, parents, teachers and staff were all so enthusiastic in helping to support such a worthwhile charity. Unfortunately, Brain Tumours kill more people under the age of 40 than any other form of cancer in the UK so it is vital as much research as possible takes place to try and prevent it."
