A PADBURY charity has appointed two local professionals to help with its vital work.
Brain Tumour Research which now counts 18 separate brain tumour member charities across the UK under its umbrella, is forging ahead with its target to fund seven centres of research excellence in a bid to see an end to the thousands of deaths each year from brain tumours.
And to further this aim, it has appointed Glyn Lewis, of Buckingham, as fundraising manager and Gawcott man Hugh Adams as campaign manager.
Mr Lewis, aged 60, has previously worked for Marie Curie Cancer Care and The Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance Trust. He has also been a volunteer driver for North Bucks Community Car Service and South Central Ambulance Service.
Mr Adams, aged 50, was a film cameraman for the BBC before leaving London and the media world to help people with drug and alcohol issues gain control of their lives.
