Help Joss Searchlight find a cure for some of the rarest brain tumours and give suppport to families

Even though cancer affects 1 in 500 children every year in the U.K, things are getting a whole lot better for children with cancer

Fifty Years ago, sadly 60% of children with a cancer diagnosis didn’t make it.  Now the prognosis for most children is looking much better with 80% of children recovering from most cancers. 

We need to get the cure rate up for Brain Tumours - NOW

You can do something amazing


After years of campaigning, Proton Therapy is available in U.K

Facing a child’s cancer diagnosis is an incredibly painful thing

Founding Trustee on ITV News

Joss Searchlight founder, Dianne Parkes on the partnership between Joss Searchlight and The Brain Tumour Charity. CEO Nigel Parkes said ‘The groundbreaking partnership

At times I sobbed and at others it was completely glorious

Owen walked The Pennines and raised near £2K

“The walk was HARD, bad weather [hurricane] and tired old legs. At times I sobbed and at others it was completely glorious. Journeys like this are always an emotional event, as time just passes naturally [with or without you] and all you have is the sky and your heartbeat. When it finished I was so thankful and glad it was over…  now I miss it !!!!

 I know the money will go to good use, keep in touch.. maybe nice for my daughter and I to visit at some point. Would be a good experience for her regards what really matters in life”

The Pennines is recognised as being the hardest walk in the U.K
