Albright IP, has raised £240 for the Brain Tumour Charity by joining its national ‘Wear it Out’ fund raising initiative in March.
‘Wear it Out’ is a national campaign to raise awareness and funds for Brain Tumour month, which started on the 3rd March. To help kick start the campaign, Albright IP invited staff and suppliers to an afternoon drinks reception to raise money by donning specially designed bandanas to show their support for the charity and help raise awareness.
Albright IP, Managing Director Robert Games commented. “We’re really proud to be supporting this charity. It’s a very worthy cause which needs more awareness around it. According to the Brain Tumour Charity, less than 2% of cancer research funding is spent on research into brain tumours and with over 10,600 people diagnosed each year, this funding just simply isn’t enough.”
Staff and suppliers got involved and bought and wore the official ‘Wear it Out’ bandana. Together they raised £120 which Albright IP matched, taking the total to £240 – with all proceeds going to the charity. Albright staff took selfies (part of the ‘Wear it Out’ campaign) and tweeted out their image in support of the charity using the hashtag #WearitOut.
The charity aim to raise £150k for the month, which could fund 600 days of research. For more information on Brain Tumour Awareness Month visit www.thebraintumourcharity.org
