Radio Warwick (RaW) are currently undertaking a 51 hour continuous broadcast to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity, setting a goal of raising £2,000. The broadcast kicked off at noon on Wednesday 22 November and will continue until 3pm on Friday.
In order to raise awareness of both the charity and the broadcast, Co-Station Manager Jack Abbey appeared on stage at Pop! alongside Disco Dave, fulfilling a “lifelong dream”.
Currently less than 2% of cancer research funding is spent on brain tumours, although they remain the biggest killer of children and adults under the age of 40 of any cancer
Founded in 1996, The Brain Tumour Charity “aims to make a difference on a daily basis to the lives of individuals with brain tumours, including their relatives. They are committed to fighting brain tumours through research, awareness and support. Each of these areas can help save lives and improve quality of life for those affected.”
