Poole telecommunications firm VoIP Unlimited has supported its charity of the year, The Brain Tumour Charity, by taking part in Bandanas for Brain Tumours 2015.
In a mission to encourage awareness of the symptoms of brain tumours, the team embraced casual Friday and donned bandanas exclusively designed by The Brain Tumour Charity as part of its Wear it out campaign and Brain Tumour Awareness Month, raising £86.
The key objective of Bandanas for Brain Tumours 2015 was to get the message to Parliament that diagnosing brain tumour patients earlier can save lives, as despite the government’s commitment to early diagnosis of cancer it has provided no funds or resources to raise awareness of the symptoms of brain tumours.
Mark Pillow, managing director of VoIP Unlimited, said: “VoIP Unlimited is dedicated to supporting The Brain Tumour Charity in its work to fight brain tumours and save lives through ground-breaking research, awareness and care.
Mark added: “Taking part in Bandanas for Brain Tumours was a way to get behind the charity and spread the word about the incredible work it does, and to encourage the government to sit up and listen.”
VoIP Unlimited also supports The Brain Tumour Charity’s HeadSmart campaign, which aims to raise the awareness of brain tumour symptoms in children and young people.
