A Tina Turner Tribute

A Tina Turner Tribute


Mon 08 July

Another amazing group of people making something amazing happen for BTRS.
Having been diagnosed with a brain tumour three years ago, Fliss Chaffer is organising a Tina Turner tribute evening to raise money for BTRS and Myeloma UK.

The event talkes place on Saturday 14th September at Main Pine, The Green, Grene Hammerton, YO26 8BQ and as well as a world-class Tina Turner tribute act includes:
  • a drinks reception
  • a hog roast supper
  • an auction of promises
  • a gin bar
Tickets cost £25 and you can get hold of one by emailing t.turner.g.h@gmail.com or calling 01423 339 389.

In her own words, this is why Fliss chose BTRS...


My chosen charity, which has been an extremely difficult decision as there are so many worthy causes, is The Brain Tumour Research & Support based in Yorkshire or to add to an already copious list of acronyms BTRS.

It is known as the ‘Silent Killer’, but not so silent now…. Over 9,000 new cases of primary brain tumours are diagnosed in the UK annually.  It is the vision and ethos of the charity to reduce this number significantly and support all those whom are affected to ease the journey and give them strength in whichever way suits – thereon   BTRS was formed.
The vision is to quote “clear and simple” to cure a devastating disease, and whilst they work tirelessly for funding to find a cure, BTRS offer the invaluable support to those affected.

Raising significant funds to support dedicated research projects into treating and curing child and adult brain tumours has already heralded the facility to research brain tumour with a laboratory based at the LGI and Institute for Molecular Medicine in Leeds, whose job it is to lead and guide the future for this research. Accomplished medical experts whom work with brain tumour patients every day inform the trustees of the charity! Medicine meets science!

Mr Paul Chumas has been my Neurosurgeon and is also the co-founder of BTRS so it is extra pertinent and special that this is by way of an infinitesimal way of saying thank you for all his and his amazing team of colleagues for giving me the opportunity to continue to say thank you. Words don’t cut it, but action and doing something worthwhile does - so let’s dig down deep this evening, have a good giggle and support these trailblazers!!
