A Christmas tree has been donated to Brain Tumour Research as part of its hope appeal.

It is standing in its new head office in Shenley Wood thanks to Cherry Lane garden centre in Potterspury.

Sue Farrington Smith, chief executive, said: “Every year 16,000 families hear the devastating news that a loved one has been diagnosed with a brain tumour.

“They go on to discover that brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under the age of 40, yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease. This is totally unacceptable!

“We are asking supporters and fundraisers this Christmas just to take a few moments to write a message of hope on the back of a bauble and send it back to us with a donation.

“Brain Tumour Research is very grateful to Cherry Lane for its lovely gesture. Cherry Lane, as well as its parent company QD Stores, have given us incredible support over the years.”
