By Chris Gill in Charity

MEMBERS of the Truro based group of Brain Tumour Support were out on the streets of Truro on Friday 3 March, raising awareness of the charity and collecting funds.

Supporters wore bandanas and the charity’s mascot Mr Hippo came along too!

Every year 16,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with a brain tumour. They can affect anyone, regardless of age, gender, lifestyle or general health. Brain Tumour Support is a UK charity dedicated to offering specialist support to anyone affected by a brain tumour, their aim is that no one feels alone or isolated.

“We hold monthly support groups here in Truro on the second Tuesday of the month, 11.30am-1pm at Truro Library, Union Place,” said Julie Liddle, the charity’s Support Worker for Cornwall and Devon. “Anyone is welcome to come for a chat and a cuppa. We share experiences and people find they make instant friends. The charity’s motto is ‘Together We are Stronger’ and we most certainly are. Group members describe us as a family.”

Support is tailored to individual’s needs and so Julie also offers telephone and email support, along with home visits.
