Our Patrons and Celebrities – Brain Tumour Research – Brain Tumour Research

Get involved in Wear A Hat Day
Using their credibility and stature, they raise valuable awareness, open doors to new opportunities and connections, and help with our fundraising and campaigning activities. They give up their precious time in order to set an example that people can follow.
Of course, and as you can appreciate, these ambassadors are incredibly busy individuals and we are very careful about the amount of times we pull on their generosity.
Antiques Roadshow expert Theo Burrell was diagnosed with a glioblastoma (GBM) in June 2022 after suffering from migraines for six months.
Since then, she has undertaken numerous media appearances and participated in our Walk of Hope in September 2023 to raise awareness of brain tumours.
Theo visited our Centre of Excellence at Queen Mary University of London, where she met scientists working at the forefront of the fight to find a cure for GBM and other brain tumours.
We are delighted Theo has become a Patron to officially support the charity and we look forward to working with her.

Ian is known to millions of TV viewers and is the only actor to create major roles in two most popular soaps Tricky Dicky, Albert Square’s lothario Market Manager in Eastenders and Vernon the hapless drummer in Coronation Street. Very different roles but both of which captured the attention of the public.
Celebrity Supporter “Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer. They are indiscriminate and can strike at any time of life. I’m supporting Wear A Hat Day because I know the devastation brain tumours cause. Help us fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.”

John Newman
Celebrity Supporter “I was shaking I was so scared when I was told I had a brain tumour and it was a neurosurgeon who saved my life. To keep improving outcomes for others at my age that are being diagnosed with a brain tumour, we must seriously increase the funding for the research into this disease. I am delighted to bring awareness of Wear A Hat Day to all my fans and am asking everyone to please get involved make a donation to Brain Tumour Research. Let’s fund this fight together!”

Kady McDermott

“Nan was the rock of our family…by the time they confirmed it was a brain tumour, there was nothing anyone could do…things happened so quickly. As soon as we got the diagnosis, she went downhill. It was like Nan just wasn’t there anymore. She couldn’t even talk really.”

Linda Robson
“I’m delighted to be able to help such a wonderful and passionate charity. My closest cousin Jackie had been diagnosed with a brain tumour and I’m amazed by the lack of funding being made available for this terrible and life-threatening disease, so I’m doing what I can to help raise awareness and increase support for Brain Tumour Research and Wear A Hat Day.”
“To have lost my mum thirty years ago, and, more recently, my stepmother, it is disheartening to hear that not much has changed. More research is needed so fewer lives will be devastated by this dreadful disease. I want to see a day when cancer is no longer life-threatening, when the notion that cancer could be a killer is thought absurd.”

John resigned his role as a Patron in 2019.
He was elected as the 157th Speaker of the House of Commons on 22nd June 2009 and was a Member of Parliament for Buckingham from 1997 to 2019.

John was alerted to the plight of brain tumours in January 2004, by a constituent and was particularly touched by the stories of children. “There can surely be few more tragic or heartbreaking experiences than for a parent to discover that his or her child has a brain tumour.”
Together we will find a cure
