09 September 2020

Over the past few months, we have kept our services operating on a business as usual service as best as we can to support you, our NF community.

But now we need to ask you for help. As you know Covid19 has led to many fundraising events like; The Great North Run, Prudential Ride and The Asics London 10K to be cancelled. These events generate the majority of donations for us and without them our income streams have been totally depleted.

That’s why we’re asking you to get out there and fundraise for Nerve Tumours UK. After this long lock down getting outside and putting the Fun into Fundraising will help us and the community immensely. However small your activity may seem, any donations you raise will help to support you, our community and our specialist Neurofibromatosis network - The Helpline, our nurses, Information provision name it.

It’s time to get creative and plan your own fundraiser. If you are yet to decide on how to get involved, we’ve got lots of great ideas for you; GoSober in October, Movember, Christmas collections, Sponsored Walk, Virtual Challenge, Game for Good, Picnic in the Park, Coffee Morning, Online Quiz, Donate your commute, Hold a Masterclass, Loose Change.


Go Sober, get sponsored to become booze-free for an entire month!
