Manx Lottery Trust Awards Funding To Naseems Manx Brain Tumor Charity For Therapeutic Support Project

01 February 2024

The Manx Lottery Trust is pleased to confirm that it has awarded a grant of £9,000 to Naseem’s

Manx Brain Tumour Charity. This funding will support a crucial project that focuses on providing

therapeutic support to individuals and families affected by brain tumours.


The project, a collaboration between Naseem’s Manx Brain Tumour Charity and Isle Listen, aims to

alleviate the emotional overwhelm experienced by brain tumour sufferers and their caregivers. By

offering therapeutic support, the project seeks to equip individuals with the necessary tools to deal

with the unique challenges that accompany a brain tumour diagnosis.


Geraldine Pishvaie, from Naseem’s Manx Brain Tumour Charity, said: ‘Living with a diagnosis of brain

tumour can be an incredibly uncertain and overwhelming time for both patients and caregivers. It

becomes difficult for individuals to focus on activities and tasks that can benefit their well-being. This

support is designed to empower individuals by providing them with essential skills to navigate the

difficulties they encounter during this challenging period.’


Stephen Turner, Chairman for Manx Lottery Trust, added: ‘Naseem’s Manx Brain Tumour Charity has

already made a significant impact on the lives of the people it supports. We are delighted to extend

our support to this collaboration with Isle Listen, and we hope that many individuals will benefit

from this project.’


The grant awarded to Naseem’s Manx Brain Tumour Charity is made possible through the Manx

Lottery Trusts Dormant Asset Programme. Under this programme, charities and not-for-profit

organizations have the opportunity to apply for funding up to £50,000. The Manx Lottery Trust is

committed to assisting organisations that make a positive and meaningful difference in the lives of

individuals in the Isle of Man.
