Charity Partner

Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre (CBTRC) announced as official charity partner of BUCS Big Wednesday.

We are delighted to announce Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre (CBTRC) as the Official Charity partner of BUCS Big Wednesday.

Children’s brain tumours account for around a fifth of childhood cancers in the UK.

Survival rates for other cancers have improved dramatically over the past 50 years, but the same isn't true for brain tumours. Now more children die from brain tumours than even leukaemia. More than a third of children with brain tumours die despite modern treatment.

Damage to a developing child caused by brain tumours and their treatment carries an extra burden. Two thirds of those cured will be disabled for the rest of their lives. There are around 35,000 survivors of childhood brain tumours living with the side effects of their disease and its treatment.

The Children's Brain Tumour Research Centre is helping change all of that. They’re developing new and better methods of treating childhood brain cancer, and improving the quality of life of children who are cured.


In support of this fantastic cause, proceeds from BUCS Big Wednesday will be donated to the Children’s Brain Tumour Research Centre (CBTRC) — the Official Charity Partner of University of Nottingham Sport.
