Setting sail in aid of Brain Tumour Research
  • Plymouth Sound

Save event

A Plymouth University team will set sail to raise money for Brain Tumour Research in the Eddystone Charity Pursuit, the South West’s largest charity sailing event. 

Our crew hope to raise funds for the Plymouth University Brain Tumour Research Centre of Excellence. William Davies, skipper at the Marine Station, will lead a crew aboard the University boat, Take The Helm, with help from staff and students at the Faculty of Science and Engineering.

The Brain Tumour Research Centre's world-leading team conduct research into low-grade brain tumours, which are usually benign but can become malignant. Their focus is to identify and understand the mechanism underlying the development of brain tumours, and explore ways to halt or reverse that mechanism.
