The photo above is Ben McNicol. He was a little boy in my goddaughter’s class. He died from a brain tumour in 2012 at the age of six and his family has worked hard to raise money through a trust set up in his name.

The trust’s aim is to provide accommodation near treatment centres, including the Royal Marsden, for families in similar circumstances.
