YPA helps Yorkshire brain tumour research charity reach £250,000 milestone
23rd May 2011
BRAIN tumour research charity The PPR Foundation is a quarter of the way to reaching its quest of raising £1m before 2015, thanks to a £2,000 donation from the Yorkshire Publication Association (YPA).
Founded in 2009 by Pamela Roberts following the death of her husband Peter from a brain tumour, the Harrogate charity raises money to support various research projects aimed at possible causes, cures and treatments.
A charity ball held by the YPA at Harrogate’s Rudding Park raised £2,000. Founded in 1923, it is the oldest publicity association in the UK.
Ms Roberts said: “We are delighted to have reached the £250,000 mark. We pride ourselves on the fact that every single penny raised goes directly to the project and we will continue to strive towards raising as much money as possible with our ultimate goal of beating this life threatening disease.
“I would like to not only thank the YPA for its generous donation, but Javan Liam Photography and The Whole Caboodle in Harrogate for kindly donating time and effort towards the foundation.”
