Hethersett charity Finnbar's Force have donated £5,000 to Action Medical Research.
Founders of Finnbar's Force, Tristan and Claire Cork, presented the cheque to Action ambassador Fiona Bruce at a special presentation night in London.
Action and The Brain Tumour Charity are jointly funding a research project headed by professor Andrew Peet of Birmingham Children's Hospital, which aims to use new technologies to provide more personalised and targeted treatments for children with brain tumours. The study hopes to increase the effectiveness of minimally invasive scans, reducing the need for surgery in determining prognoses.
Mr and Mrs Cork founded Finnbar's Force earlier this year after losing their son, Finnbar, to a brain tumour at the age of five.
Since then, the charity has £35,000, which is being used to fund research, raise awareness and support children diagnosed with brain tumours.
