WOMAC CONFIRMS 2021 FUNDRAISING PLANS

25 January 2021. Women On the Move Against Cancer’s (WOMAC) annual February party is a firm fixture in the automotive calendar and very well supported by the industry, but unfortunately February 2021 will be the first year in more than 40 years that WOMAC won’t be holding its annual party, due to the ongoing pandemic and restrictions.

That said, the fundraising won’t stop, because cancer isn’t stopping for anyone or anything. WOMAC will continue its money raising initiatives in a variety of ways including a series of ‘WOMAC Weeks’, encouraging people to take on challenges and fun activities, all with the mission to raise as much money as possible for WOMAC’s 2021 charity, brainstrust.

The national charity supports patients, caregivers and families facing a life-limiting brain tumour diagnosis, through offering practical advice and emotional support to improve their mental well-being. All of this is done through brainstrust’s coaching, counselling, events and NHS-accredited resources, thus making people affected by a brain tumour feel part of a community, more supported and more engaged with clinical care. Regular meet-ups across the country have been adapted to online forums in order for brainstrust to continue supporting its community in COVID-19 times too.

Georgia Fox, Chair of WOMAC, said: “It is a real shame our February party can’t go ahead this year, but we are more determined than ever to raise as much money as possible, and who knows, maybe 2021 is the year for a summer party!

“Over the years WOMAC has raised more than a million pounds for 60 different charities and organisations, all with the aim of supporting those with cancer. Donating vital funds and seeing the money genuinely help those suffering makes me very proud of all that we do here at WOMAC, an organisation made up of more than 50 volunteers.”

More details of ‘WOMAC Weeks’ will be released across its social channels in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!

About brainstrust
A brain tumour diagnosis is frightening, isolating and has a devastating social impact. brainstrust helps patients, their families and carers to navigate the uncertainties that a diagnosis brings. Many face mental health, cognition, dexterity and mobility challenges because of either the tumour itself or the treatment, and must learn to accept a new normal which is different to the life they have established. It is a distressing and bewildering experience, and that is where brainstrust helps.

brainstrust provides personalised support and builds resources that help people with a brain tumour and their loved ones live the life they want to after diagnosis. They work with people in the clinical setting to secure the best possible care for people with a brain tumour and campaign to solve real issues, because they understand the challenges faced by the brain tumour community.
