Get your company involved
Whatever the size of your company, there are so many ways you can make a real difference to the lives of people affected by a brain tumour and their families.
"We were overwhelmed by the support we received for Headnorth, and by taking on more extreme challenges, we want to inspire the Y.CO team, the yachting industry and the wider luxury industry to embrace challenges and support those in need."
Charlie Birkett, Co-Founder and CEO of Y.CO
Why Partner With Us?
Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40.
By partnering with The Lewis Moody Foundation, your company can help change this shocking fact. The Foundation is 100% reliant on donations so every penny raised really does count.
With your help we can continue to fund projects which have a direct impact for people with a brain tumour. Projects funded by The Foundation include:
The life-saving HeadSmart campaign which has so far helped to reduce childhood diagnosis times from over 13 weeks to 6.5 weeks.
Family Days for those affected by brain tumours. So far, we have funded 10 Family Days for over 400 people across the UK in the last 3 years – providing a lifeline and a chance for family’s affected to enjoy themselves out of hospital.
A groundbreaking new research project into adult brain tumours which will inform a new awareness raising campaign for early diagnosis.
However, there is so much more to do. A charity partnership with us gives your company the opportunity to focus resources on a cancer of unmet need, knowing your support is genuinely making a significant difference.
People are at the heart of everything we do and we tailor every partnership to suit your needs. We promise to support you at every step of the way. Although fundraising is extremely important, we will explore other ways that you can get involved and engage and motivate your colleagues. From volunteering your time and talent, to giving a Gift in Kind, sponsoring an event or raising awareness of our HeadSmart campaign, we place huge value on other ways of giving back.
A partnership with The Lewis Moody Foundation offers excellent PR opportunities and Lewis’s personal involved with The Foundation means close links can be developed.
It's only by working together that we can make a difference to those affected by this devastating disease. If your workplace wants to get involved, we would love to hear from you. If you have any questions please contact [email protected] or call 01252 237 811.
