Fracella Research Trust was officially set up on 11th May
2005 in memory of a beautiful, intelligent, feisty and affectionate
young lady called Alison who sadly lost her life in January 2004 at the
age of 29 years, to a Glioblastoma Multiform Brain Tumour (the fastest
growing, most aggressive form of brain tumour). Alison touched the
hearts of many and inspired confidence from all those around her. She
will always be remembered as our ‘Lady Of Courage’
amount of work has been put into establishing Alison’s own charity and
fund raising has continued in Alison’s memory and will be used to
research into the causation, nature and treatment of patients with
Glioblastoma multiform brain tumours.
We have a
lot more hard work to do yet but have been overwhelmed with people’s
generosity. We are always looking for new and innovative ideas so
please feel free to email us with any encouraging ideas you may have.
Our operating costs are less than one percent of funds raised.
This is a lottery syndicate called a 49 Club which
has received excellent backing and we have already established two of
these 49 Club lottery syndicates. Approximately half of what we collect
through the 49 Clubs is for our Charity and the remainder is for prize
The 49 Club has been officially endorsed
by our local Council and it works alongside the National Lottery Game on
National Television. Buyers contribute an annual upfront subscription
amount (which works out at between £2 and £5 a month depending on the
syndicate) for a number between 1 and 49.
On the first Saturday of every month if
your number matches the bonus ball on the National Lottery Game you win
approximately double your annual subscription. You have 12 chances
throughout the year, so it could be possible for £2 per month, or £24
per year to win £588!
If you wish to contribute to one of our
syndicates, do please get in contact with us.
We know there are many of you out there
who we have not yet approached and we’re sure by word of mouth from
others you too are keen to support this Appeal. In fairness we were
overwhelmed with our initial syndicates and we would love to hear from
anyone who is interested in the next one we will be launching very
We are also very keen to promote the 49
Club to those of you who have viewed our webpage and who wish to support
the Charity, your help is invaluable to us.
