A Pinner charity has raised nearly £10,000 to help fund research into finding a cure for brain tumours.
Around 80 supporters of local charity The William Low Trust took part in a 10-mile walk across 12 of London’s landmark bridges on Sunday, October 16. They aimed to raise money for Brain Tumour Research and their sponsorship of a PhD researcher in the hope of finding treatments and an eventual cure for brain tumours.
The trust was founded in honour of William Low, who passed away from a brain tumour six weeks before his 18th birthday in August 2017.
William’s mum Helen, who took part in the walk, wanted to thank those involved in helping to fund the mission to find a cure.
She said: “We are very grateful to all who joined and sponsored us for the walk. There was a great atmosphere, especially at the celebration party at the finish when we raised a glass of fizz to William. We were thinking of him as we passed a wealth of famous sights, while pondering on how we were funding life-changing research with every step.
“Many thanks to our chair Richard Green for organising the event.”
