Hammer Out was started in March 2002 as a small fundraising group to raise awareness of brain tumours and the needs of those affected by them as well as raising money for brain and cancer related charities.
The name “Hammer Out” was created out of Paul’s avid support of his football team West Ham ‘The Hammers’ United - hence the claret and blue theme.
Hammer Out is now a registered charity. While continuing to support the original aims, this will also give Hammer Out the opportunity to raise funds for very specific purposes. One such project is to establish support groups for people with brain tumours, their families and carers. The first of these groups has already been set up in the Bristol area.
Hammer Out would like people experiencing the shock and bewilderment of the diagnosis of brain tumours to know that you are not alone and have others to turn to.
