'Time' is an art exhibition which encapsulates the experience and journey of the brain tumour community.

Volunteers will be required to complete internal data protection documentation before commencing the role. Volunteers must be over 18. We encourage volunteers to claim for any reasonable expenses that are incurred in the course of their volunteering with the Charity.
