Cirencester College teacher raises £1,000 for Brain Tumour Research

A GRANDMOTHER has raised more than £1,000 after hosting festive charity workshops in Cirencester. 

Karen Bell, who works at Cirencester College has been organising bauble decorating workshops for Brain Tumour Research. 

She has been raising money for the charity for the last seven years following her granddaughter Myah’s brain tumour diagnosis in 2015.

Karen, who is a keen artist, organised nine bauble decorating workshops to raise money for the charity.

These included baubles parties for adult learners at the college, several bauble parties in people’s homes, staff and student enrichment sessions at the college as well as a session with students doing an enterprise project. 

Cirencester college students then held their own bauble sale and raised over £100 for the charity. 

The grand total from Karen’s fundraising efforts is currently at £1,032

“The workshops have been a great fun way to raise money for Brain Tumour Research,” Karen said. 

“It has been lovely watching people get so enthused with the variety of colours and enjoying the whole creative process with their friends.  

“I had no idea it would be so popular and will need to start earlier next year as I ran out of evenings to be able to run the workshops!”

Mel Tilley, community development manager at Brain Tumour Research said: “We’re delighted to be working with Cirencester College to help us raise awareness and funds of this devastating disease.

“Karen has been a great supporter of the charity since her granddaughter’s diagnosis and her workshops have been very popular. 

“We know the team has lots of ideas for fundraising and awareness days for the rest of the year and look forward to seeing them come to fruition.”
