Following her mum, Claire’s, diagnosis with thyroid cancer, ten-year-old Eve
took part in a sponsored silence to raise money for our work. Eve said: In November I found out my
mum had thyroid cancer. It was a lot to take in. She told me not to be scared and we looked at information on thyroid cancer on the BTF website. It was helpful and made us feel better.
For my Brownie charity badge, I had to pick a charity and do a sponsored event. I did a sponsored silence, which was very hard for me. Thank you for all you do to help people like my mum.

Eve’s efforts raised £880 for the BTF
