Babies in Buscot support (BIBS) is a volunteer run charity which supports Buscot Ward, the local neonatal and special care baby unit at The Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading. BIBS raises funds to purchase new lifesaving equipment for the unit as well as refurbish and maintain parent facilities such as overnight accommodation and a family lounge. Please enable us to continue our work helping local sick and premature babies, without our supporters we would not be able to do the things that we do.

Over 9,300 people are diagnosed with a primary brain tumour each year Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40, yet still less than 2% of cancer research funding goes on brain tumours in the UK. More research is desperately needed and The Brain Tumour Charity is leading the way. Earlier this year, it announced an unprecedented £10 million investment into research projects around the UK.The charity is accredited and commended by The Association of Medical Research Charities for ensuring that all the research it funds is selected through stringent, independent peer review – the only charity in its field to do so.
