Topek Southern Limited chose Nerve Tumours UK as their joint charity partner for 2023
The TSL team are endeavouring to raise awareness of NF1, whilst at the same time raising funds for Nerve Tumours UK, which will be used to support the regional services in Hampshire, Wiltshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight.
NTUK Specialist NF Nurse, Tracey, is supporting Technical Director Dan, his wife Rachel, and their daughter Evie, who was diagnosed with NF1.
The company kickstarted their fundraising campaign on May 15, ahead of World Neurofibromatosis Awareness Day, with an internal launch, at which they invited Tracey to join them. Tracey informed the team about NF1 and how NTUK’s work supports people living with NF and their families. They were joined by Dan’s wife, Rachel, and the guest of honour, Evie.
The team had a series of events planned, to support their mission, including running the Yorkshire Marathon. They had already completed a few of their listed challenge events, including the Great South Run, Three Peaks Challenge and RideLondon-Essex 100 mile cycle ride.

Newcastle based corporate finance boutique, WilliamsAli, has announced its latest charity of the year, Nerve Tumours UK
The cause is one that is close to those at WilliamsAli as Associate Director, Mo Miah’s one year old daughter, has recently been diagnosed with the condition.
Mo added “I am over the moon with this decision. The diagnosis for our daughter has impacted greatly on our family and we have already been supported by the charity so it feels right to be giving back”
The team at WilliamsAli started their fundraising efforts by holding a Ryder Cup style golf day in September. A variety of challenges are planned throughout the year.
– Abu Ali, Managing Director
"At WilliamsAli we pride ourselves on our family values so when Mo suggested Nerve Tumours UK as our next charity of the year, there was no decision to be made. Mo is a big part of our team and we will do everything we can to support him and his family"
Clinical research organisation: motivated by the knowledge that they are helping others and actively strive to do ‘Better Business’
"Supporting Nerve Tumours UK is a really important part of that. We don’t just want to give one-off donations, we’re really keen to develop relationships, working with charities to make real change in any way we can."
Delivering financial solutions, choosing to be honest about where their value lies and ensuring they make an impact
– Alpha FX
"We’re supporting Nerve Tumours UK as a member of the team, Danni, who works as Head of Settlements, has a personal connection to the charity. Her nephew has Neurofibromatosis. We’re a small business ourselves and understand the importance of supporting smaller charities, as they can often be overlooked in favour of larger organisations. As a close-knit team, a cause personally important to one member, is important to the whole team."

At RBH we dare to care – about our work, about each other, and about the world at large.
Last Christmas we turned the billboard outside our offices into a giant advent calendar, with a festive good deed hidden behind each door. One of which was a contribution to Nerve Tumours UK, whose work we have been supporting as their creative communications partner. We have called our Christmas campaign #24ActsOfKindness, and it was promoted day by day on our social channels and website: https://rbh.co.uk/
– Debra Hepburn, Founding Partner, RBH
"We are proud to support the growth and development of Nerve Tumours UK’s network in any way we can, because we think the brilliant job they do deserves far greater exposure."

Raise Awareness with a Nerve Tumours UK stand at your event
Mike has NF1 and a love of magic.
"I have been interested in magic since I was very young. I had found a decent magic club, the Manchester Circle of Magicians near me, but then got involved with the Blackpool Magicians Club.
Every February, it hosts the Blackpool Magicians Convention, which according to Guinness World Records is the world’s largest magic convention
and has a featured charity every year, and I was able to persuade the Club to make Nerve Tumours UK the choice for this year.
"What was important to me about featuring Nerve Tumours UK at the Convention was not just the chance to raise funds (though that is greatly needed) but also to raise awareness about NF. "
The above ideas were developed collectively, and may give you some inspiration.
