Charity launches Christmas appeal

Brain Tumour Support, a national charity based in Thornbury, is launching its ‘Stars for Support’ Christmas appeal.

 It’s hoping for donations so that it can continue its work supporting people with brain tumours and their families. 

Sparkling knitted star Christmas decorations have been made by volunteers. Every time a donation is made, a star will be put on the tree in the charity’s office. It can be dedicated to someone affected by a brain tumour. 

Tina Mitchell Skinner, founder and CEO of Brain Tumour Support said: "Whether in support or celebration, in memory or in tribute, it is a simple and personal gesture which will also help us to help others," 

"Demand for our services is constantly growing and we urgently need to help more brain tumour patients and their families. Our charity relies entirely on donations and we hope that the people of Thornbury will get behind our campaign and help us achieve our vision that no-one should feel alone when facing a brain tumour diagnosis."

The charity offers support groups, counselling, and on-line and telephone support.  For more information and to order stars, go to
