The Brain Tumour Research Campain – Supported by Home House

May 2, 2012 · Posted in Finance · Comment 

Brain tumours affect people of all ages. There is a need for a better understanding of what causes them, how the brain reacts to them and how they behave and even greater need for better and more effective treatments. Any brain tumor is inherently serious and life-threatening because of its invasive and infiltrative character in the limited space of the intracranial cavity. However, brain tumors (even malignant ones) are not invariably fatal.

In order to put forward a stronger voice, the Brain Tumour Research group of charities united to form a representative body – The Brain Tumour Research Campaign. It was launched in 2008 specifically for fundraising for brain tumour research, and is a different organisation to its constituent members, it operates under its own steam.

The charity now has nationwide coverage. Within the Brain Tumour Research Group, there are sixteen brain tumour charities in the UK. Over 1 million was raised in 2008, when all sixteen charities banded together at first. The funds that the organisation raises are given directly to centres who need them, who are carrying out brain tumour research. In order to acquire funds, the centres apply to the organisation and are subjected to peer review.

Public awareness and the urgent need for research and funding for research are among the main concerns of the organisation. This fundraising should support the arrival of Britain’s first multi-disciplinary Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence, which is based in Charing Cross Hospital in London. Aiming to raise over 7 million every year, the BTRC hopes to accelerate progress in the research into brain tumours in the UK in order to make a real, tangible difference in the lives of current and future patients of brain tumours.

London’s Premier private member’s club Home House, has recently announced that their new charity will be the Brain Tumour Research Campaign. Home House has a long history of supporting British charities in need, and hope to offer more support, both monetary and otherwise to the BTRC.

Home House greets people from all walks of life, which is part of its appeal. Quite unlike many other private members venues, Home House is a place to enjoy leisure time or the perfect spot for a working day. Home house is London’s most Luxurious and Exclusive venue for hire in London, offering myriad events to discover new pastimes and exclusive experiences.

Cinema

As the golden age of the cinema finally come to a close? Thanks to online streaming services, we now have a much more cost-effective way of watching Hollywood productions at home… but even if we have all the extras available at our local Odeon at home, a visit to the cinema can still be a very special occasion.

The BBC tells us that in the nine years between 2002 and 2011, cinema attendance has dropped by 20%. Ironically, these days the cinema experience is better than ever, with state-of-the-art technology like IMAX pulling us so deeply into the movie that it no longer feels like a work of fiction but more like real-life going on all around us – complete with soundtrack.

And as for 3D, nobody can say that sitting in their living room in front of a 42 inch flatscreen television can come anywhere close to having all that action leaping towards them from a 20 metre cinema screen. But it’s not just technology that makes a visit to the cinema so special: it’s the memories of that visit that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Whatever the occasion, whether bunking off from school with your mates, or the first date with the love of your life… or even just a family outing to a movie you all enjoyed together – these are the sort of landmarks in our lives that we will always remember.

If you haven’t tried it any streaming services then you should now because they are fantastic except they lose the magic, the excitement and atmosphere that the cinema creates. At the films, the movie could be set at wedding venues or an international club and you feel like you are actually there.

So here’s a suggestion: the next time you see an advertisement for a movie that makes you really want to watch it, how about helping to save cinemas all over the world by not buying the DVD and instead enjoying a special night out at the movies?

Home House welcomes people from all walks of life, which is part of its uniqueness. Quite unlike the starchiness of so many other private members clubs, Home House is a place to enjoy free time or the ideal arena for a entertain clientsing day. Home house is London’s most Luxurious and Exclusive Private Member’s Club. Catch up with friends, socialise, exercise, entertain clients or relax at Home House.
