On December 1, The Brain Charity launched its #Sixmas appeal to raise £6,000 for the 1 in 6 people living with neurological conditions.
We invited our supporters to plan any COVID-safe or virtual six-themed fundraising event - whether active or from the comfort of their own sofa.
We were blown away by the support we received and are delighted to have smashed our target by raising more than £11,200.
Our fundraisers Jordan and Russel (not forgetting their pooch Rudy too!) aimed to walk 600km in December to raise money in memory of Jordan’s nana, who passed away in July after suffering a burst brain aneurysm. The fantastic trio completed their challenge having raised nearly £400, smashing their £100 target.
Young fundraisers Ulliana and Alison, sixth form students with a passion for photography and medicine, supported The Brain Charity with a virtual exhibition of 25 images of the natural world which represented 25 parts of the human body.
And closer to home, Greg in our fundraising team set himself the mammoth challenge of doing 600 star jumps a day for six days – and raised more than £1,000 single-handedly.
From everyone at The Brain Charity, thank you for your support. If you didn’t get a chance to fundraise for us, you can pledge to donate £6 a month here.
