How to have a very merry YBTC Christmas

How to have a very merry YBTC Christmas

Fri 27 November

With Christmas just around the corner, we’ve got lots of exciting festive things happening here at Yorkshire’s Brain Tumour Charity.

From a yuletide raffle and a message from Santa to virtual secret Santa gifts and an in-memory event, today we’re rounding up all things festive that we’d love you to get involved in.



In Business has got Talent


Created to beat the lockdown blues and provide some light entertainment, we’d love you to join our virtual talent show on 3rd December. We have some great performers like Rowan signed up, and we’re looking for more of Yorkshire’s best talent, of all ages and abilities, to put on the show! The talent show is open to people of all abilities. If you’re interested in performing please email Nicki at


Not very talented? Don’t worry, you can still join in by buying a ticket to watch the show here.


This event has been kindly sponsored by the team over at In Business.

'In Memory' event

We're still hopeful that our 'In Memory' event will be going ahead in December. This has been specially planned for everyone who would like to remember a loved one this year and will be held on Sunday 13th December.


We will be continuing to plan the event based on the latest Government guidance on social distancing. More details on the timings and the event itself will be announced in due course.


Please contact us if you and your family would like to join us by e-mailing or by ringing 0113 340 0111 or to light up a star click here.

Get a personlised message from Santa

Worried your little ones will miss out on meeting Santa? You can create your own bit of Christmas magic with a personalised message from the big man himself. Just let us know what you would like him to say and our elves will organise everything else. This will be in the form of a video message and comes with a suggested donation of £5. Find out more here.

If you’re doing any Christmas shopping through Amazon Smile you can support YBTC each time you shop. All you have to do is go to and select YBTC as your chosen charity, then Amazon will donate a portion of your purchase price each time you shop!

Send YBTC Christmas cards
