As a business, we have strong commitment to giving back to the community, and our latest initiative aims to make a significant impact in the fight against brain tumours. By partnering with The Brain Tumour Charity this quarter, we are raising funds to support crucial research, provide valuable resources, and offer much-needed support to individuals and families affected by this life-altering diagnosis.
You can contribute to our fundraising efforts by visiting our JustGiving page here. Every donation, no matter how big or small, will help find new treatments, increase survival and quality of life and give a lifeline of support to those who need it most.

Brain Tumour Awareness: Know the Symptoms
Awareness is key to early detection and successful treatment of brain tumours. The website HeadSmart offers a valuable resource for adults to learn about the common symptoms of brain tumours. Here are some symptoms to be aware of:
1. Persistent Headaches
Frequent and severe headaches that don't improve with over-the-counter pain relief should be taken seriously.
2. Seizures or Fits
Experiencing seizures or fits for the first time as an adult is a red flag for potential brain tumour-related issues.
3. Changes in Vision
Blurred or double vision, loss of vision, or unexplained visual disturbances should be examined by a medical professional.
4. Nausea and Vomiting
Unexplained nausea and vomiting, especially in the morning or without an obvious cause, should be investigated.
5. Weakness or Numbness
Sudden weakness or numbness in one part of the body, particularly if it's on one side, can be a sign of a neurological issue.
6. Memory Problems
Difficulty with memory, concentration, or changes in personality and behaviour can indicate brain tumour-related issues.
7. Unexplained Fatigue
Severe and persistent fatigue, especially if it's accompanied by other symptoms, should not be ignored.
8. Speech Difficulties
Difficulty speaking, slurred speech, or language problems can be a symptom of brain tumour-related issues.
