Our History

In April 2006 the 2Simple Trust (click the link which takes you to the Charity Commission record and the annual report and accounts) was set up to help Jack Brown and children like him, who needed funds for neuroblastoma treatment abroad. More and more families who needed help contacted the charity, and over the following years the charity has grown to support more children with neuroblastoma.

In 2011 we moved forward as the Neuroblastoma Children’s Cancer Alliance UK (click the link which takes you to the Charity Commission record and our annual report and accounts). We think the new name better reflects our mission and our work. We are an alliance of parents, communities and professionals who want to improve the outcome for all children with neuroblastoma. Since 2006, we have helped fund treatment for 21 children abroad – more than any other neuroblastoma charity in the UK.

There are four charity trustees. The staff and trustees work closely with an active Parents’ Group, who together, will help us to achieve the charity’s aims.

  • Bettina (Bea) Bungay-Balwah, Chief Executive.
  •  Karen Low, Director or Operations.
  •  Onyeka Onochie, Database Manager.
  •  Kavita Negi, Publications Officer.
  •  Nikki O’Sullivan, Event Recruitment and Family Coordinator.
  •  Claire Hislop, Fundraising Coordinator.
  •  Mark Rowley, Media and Research Coordinator.
