THEY are young boys full of mischief.
But now seven-year-olds Shamsie Selam and Leif Haigh have teamed up to fundraise for brain tumour support.
Shamsie has a big reason to be raising money for Brain Tumour Support Yorkshire – his mum Debbie was diagnosed with a high-grade Astrocytoma.
As part of brain tumour awareness month Shamsie and his friend have organised for pupils and staff at Wilberlee Junior and Infants School to take part in Wear A Hat day tomorrow.
And they will have a special presentation tomorrow by the Mayor of Kirklees, Clr Eric Firth.
The boys said: “We are going to have a fun day with the Mayor that we want everyone to remember.”
Every year nearly 20 people are diagnosed with a brain tumour in Kirklees.
And despite it being the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40 only 70p of every £100 going in to researching cancers, is set aside for brain tumours.
Now the charity Astrofund, which the boys are raising money for – is calling for more funding in to research and support in to low-grade tumours.
Run entirely by volunteers, Astrofund aims to find a cure for low-grade Astrocytoma, oligodendroglioma, oligoastrocytoma and ependymoma brain tumours.
It raises money to support low-grade glioma research projects at the most innovative neuro-oncology research centres in the UK.
