Ashley and Stine Giles have launched the Giles’ Trust Brain Tumour Fund with a spectacular 1980s style ball – raising £35,000 for vital, world-class brain tumour research at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham (QEHB).

The Giles’ Trust was launched at Edgbaston Cricket Stadium on Friday, October 16, 2015, where more than 300 people came together for a dinner, auction and party.

The inaugural event raised enough money to fund The Giles’ Trust Clinical Research Nurse for 12 months, helping Professor Cruickshank to double the number of patients who can take part in brain tumour research at the QEHB.

Stine Giles said: “The evening was a great success, but it doesn’t stop there. Brain tumour research is one of the most underfunded areas and yet the biggest causes of death, especially in children, which is why we felt it so important to set up the trust. We’d love more people to get involved in fundraising for such an important cause.”
