National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year

Mema’s Challenge breaks through £5k mark with more to come

We continue to be inspired by Mema Nackasha’s 2.6 Challenge which is STILL GOING in support of her father, a consultant paediatrician in the NHS, who has been diagnosed with a glioblastoma.

Today she will be handing out 26 random compliments and even included one during a live interview with BBC Sussex after being invited on along with Brain Tumour Research spokesman Hugh Adams.

Among her most eye-catching so far has been a challenge to fit 26 olives in her mouth which, ably supported by brother Lewie, she achieved on a Facebook Live stream.

And still to come are Mema’s Comedy Club tomorrow evening which will feature jokes from some big name comedians and an online introduction to the Arabic language.

Her final challenge on Sunday is yet to be determined and you can help choose this by taking part in our Facebook poll.

Great work Mema!
