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

Charlotte completes her 20 for 20 Challenge

A woman who lost her aunt to a brain tumour has reached the final day of her 20-day challenge to raise funds in her memory.

Charlotte Scott is coming to the end of her 20 for 20 Challenge, fundraising for Brain Tumour Research in memory of her aunt, Margaret Nightingale. Since 20th October, she has been doing a variety of different sports and activities. The length, distance or repetitions are all based around the number 20, and have included 20 miles on her bike, swimming 20 laps of the pool, doing 20 press ups and 20 minutes of yoga.

Margaret was diagnosed with a brain tumour on New Year’s Day this year. Following her devastating diagnosis, she was booked in to have a biopsy so doctors could find out her tumour-type and plan her treatment accordingly. However, she discovered the biopsy couldn’t go ahead because her disease was too far advanced. Margaret passed away on 17th April.

Charlotte said: “My aunty Margaret was only 64 when she died and losing her has left a huge void in my life. She had no children of her own but she played a maternal role within the family, having a close relationship with me, my sister Victoria and our cousins. She is greatly missed by her partner Bob and all her family and friends.”

To support Charlotte on the last day of her challenge, please donate here.
