  • Our Work with Brain Tumour Support


    McCarthy Marland is a proud supporter of Brain Tumour Support. As March is Brain Tumour Awareness Month here in the UK, we thought we would use this opportunity to talk all about our partnership with the charity and delve into the fantastic work they do in supporting people affected by brain tumours.

    Who is Brain Tumour Support?

    Brain Tumour Support is a charity for anyone affected by any type of brain tumour. Their mantra is “together we are stronger”, and they are dedicated to offering free individual and specialist support at any point from diagnosis, for as long as required. 

    Every 90 minutes, somebody in the UK is diagnosed with a brain tumour. Brain Tumour Support helps hundreds of individuals and their families throughout the UK, providing much-needed advice and assistance, including emotional and practical support, specialist counselling, access to online support groups and financial guidance. After all, nobody should be alone when facing the effects of a brain tumour.

    Throughout the month of March, as part of Brain Tumour Awareness Month, the charity is shedding light on brain tumours and the detrimental impact they have on countless families across the UK. They aim to reassure those affected with brain tumours that their dedicated team is here to help at every stage following a diagnosis.

    McCarthy Marland & Brain Tumour Support: A Perfect Partnership

    Our Transport Manager, Kevin Shipway, has worked with the charity for many years through his role as junior chairman of a local rugby club. He offered the rugby club’s resources to help raise funds for one of the players who had sadly lost his father to a brain tumour. 

    When Kevin stood down from his role as chairman at the end of last season, he approached our director Kevin McCarthy to see if we could do anything to help support the charity. “Of course, Kevin jumped at the opportunity to support this fantastic charity. We have both sadly lost loved ones through brain tumours so this was something we really felt passionate about.”

    Zest Graphics kindly agreed to apply Brain Tumour Support’s logo on our 130 cubic yard trailers free of charge. Our drivers have reported that the trailers are gaining lots of interest on a daily basis, and the charity is over the moon with the results. Emma McKeown, CEO of Brain Tumour Support, had this to say: “I would like to thank McCarthy Marland and you [Kevin Shipway] personally for your ongoing and outstanding support of us as an organisation. We are doing everything we can to come through this difficult time and ensure we are here for the future.”

    Brain Tumour Support’s Urgent Call for Help

    Brain Tumour Support is launching an emergency appeal to raise £200,000 in order to secure ongoing support for the charity’s future. Over the last six months, their services have seen a whopping 56% increase in demand, whilst the cost of living crisis has created a critical funding gap. They urgently need your donations in order to sustain their services, so they can continue to provide support for families facing a brain tumour diagnosis. 

    Please donate today and help UK families move forward in the fight against brain tumours.
