Members of the Midsomer Norton & Radstock Rotary Club donned their festive hats during their on-line Christmas Fellowship Meeting in recognition of Wear A Christmas Hat Day for Brain Tumour Research and donated £100 towards the cause.
At their November Rotary Club Speaker Meeting, Community Development Manager (West), Melanie Tiley, gave a very informative talk with significant and alarming stats on Brain Tumour Research. Melanie explained, “Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What’s more, they kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer… yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.” For more information on this disease, please visit the Brain Tumour Research website at: www.BrainTumourResearch.org
The Christmas Fellowship meeting also incorporated what turned out to be a very entertaining on-screen scavenger hunt innovatively organised by Club Services Chair, Martin Carter. Club President, Nick Candy, said, “It’s been a challenging year with us not being able to meet in person so I was eager for a fun, festive, fellowship night via Zoom and it certainly was that and more. To incorporate the #WearAChristmasHatDay to bring awareness to Brain Tumour Research just added to the spirit of the occasion.”
