THREE sisters have raised £300 for the Brain Tumour Research charity in memory of their uncle.

Gracie, Ellie and Lauren Robson, aged 11, 13 and 15, took part in the Rising Sun Country Park Walk of Hope in memory of their Adam Forster who died from a brain tumour four years ago.

The girls walked for 3.9-miles to raise vital funds for research into the disease.

Mr Forster, who farmed at Shotley Bridge, passed away at the age of 42, less than a year after being diagnosed with an aggressive and inoperable glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) brain tumour.

Kerry Robson, mum to the girls and sister to Adam, said: “The girls have done so well to raise over £300 through their sponsored walk.

“I’m so proud of them and it’s lovely that they want to keep their uncle’s memory alive.

“What happened to Adam was devastating for us all but we’re channelling our grief into something positive.”

The money raised will help Brain Tumour Research in its mission to fund dedicated Research Centres of Excellence in the UK and to campaign for the Government and larger cancer charities to invest more in research nationally.
