Cardinal appeal

June 8th, 2012


On Sunday 8th July 2012, ten members of the Cardinal Group will be taking to the streets of Leeds City Centre to participate in a 10K race in aid of our chosen charity “Brain Tumour Research and Support”. Team Cardinal will be looking to raise as much as possible through sponsorships to donate to this very worthwhile organisation, the ethos of which is to provide a full circle of care for those affected by brain tumours.

Brain tumours affect around 9,000 people in the UK every year and in 2011 Cardinal lost a dear colleague Daniel Wilson at the age of 36.


Since 2003 the charity has worked to raise significant funds to establish Yorkshire’s first dedicated brain tumour research laboratory based at the Leeds Institute for Molecular Medicine. Although much progress has been made in understanding the molecular nature of brain tumours, there is still an immense amount of work to be done.

We are seeking your support in helping to raise funds for Brain Tumour Research and Support and would therefore like to extend an invitation to your company to contribute via our just giving page  where you can make an online donation

If you prefer to donate by cheque then please make cheques payable to: BTRS

Your help and support will ensure the continuation of this centre for the long-term.

Thank you in advance
