Doing it for Daisy/Funding Neuro
Registered Charity: SC042061
We are a locally based charity, raising funds in memory of Daisy Brooks. Daisy, from Bures,
died on her 7th birthday as a result of DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma - a type
of childhood brain tumour) in November 2014.
Daisy was one of the first children to be treated by Professor Gill and his team in Bristol. Daisy
underwent pioneering brain surgery aided by robots to implant a device that delivers the
chemotherapy direct to the tumour. This experimental surgery, alongside Daisy's incredible bravery
and spirit, gave her a shot against this condition and some precious, extra time with her family.
We are 'Doing it for Daisy' by raising funds for Funding Neuro to support Professor Gill to take his research
forward to a full clinical trial so that, one day, other children and families have hope for the future.
Richmond Fellowship (part of Recovery Focus)
Registered Charity: 200453
Richmond Fellowship encourages, supports and challenges people with mental
health problems on their recovery journey. We’re part of Recovery Focus,
a new group of expert charities built to inspire recovery nationwide.
Our Sudbury service provides 16 supported housing flats for those referred

NHS mental health team. We also provide a floating support service.
This is designed to help those
already living in their own homes receive assistance with day-to-day tasks and activities.
Our outreach work in the community for World Mental Health Day and
local events aims
some of the stigma attached to mental health. We provide a programme of activities for those who use our service.
