THE NATIONAL BRAIN APPEAL

The National Brain Appeal raises vital funds for The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery –the UK’s largest dedicated neurological hospital and neuroscience centre.

There are over 12.5 million people with a neurological condition in the UK today. That’s more than the number of people living with cancer, coronary heart disease and diabetes.

Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer. Stroke is the fourth single largest cause of death in the UK and second in the world. Dementia is now the leading cause of death in England and Wales.

Most of the funds raised on this evening will complete Molly’s Fund which will enable the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery to double the size of its current dedicated brain tumour unit.

A Night For Life is your chance to join us in the fight against some of Britain’s Biggest killers.
