Tom's Trust Charity Banner

UQG Optics is proud to support Tom’s Trust.

Tom’s Trust was founded in 2011 by our friends Andrew and Debs Whiteley who lost Tom, their only son, at the age of nine to a brain tumour. The Whiteleys found themselves in desperate need of specialist psychological support during this devastating time, yet found there was almost none available to families in their position.

Vowing to use Tom’s name to make a positive change, Debs and Andrew set out to ensure that psychological support would in future be available for children and their families from the point of a brain tumour diagnosis.

Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children under the age of 15. Around 400 children in the UK are diagnosed with a brain tumour every year.
