Charity risk barometer
Our Charity Risk Barometer 2019 uncovers key challenges facing charities, helps you capitalise on opportunities and reap major rewards.
The Wight Brainy Bunch was set up by firefighter Mark Grimes and his wife Kathryn, both from the Isle of Wight, following Mark’s diagnosis with a brain tumour in 2015. Their ambition is to raise money for the Brain Tumour Charity, The Fire Fighters Charity and The Wessex Neurological Centre, through various fundraising events. They also offer advice, support and financial assistance to families from the Isle of Wight who are dealing with this devastating disease.
The Wight Brainy Bunch supports patients, their family members and carers in a variety of ways, including: providing funding towards: travel for treatment at the specialist unit in Southampton; the purchase of specialist equipment; counselling and cognitive therapy; physiotherapy to aid rehabilitation; memory-making days out and short breaks for those with a terminal diagnosis.
