National brain tumour research funding needs to increase to £35 million a year
School boy kicking out at cancer
One of teenager Ed Simpson’s dreams is set to come true later today as he takes a half-time penalty at the FA Cup Final at Wembley.
He is fundraising for us with his 100 Strikes campaign after having a brain tumour removed at the age of 11.
Ed is already well on his way to raising an astonishing £100,000 through kicking an astonishing 100 penalties in 100 different locations and is hoping the half-time penalty this afternoon will help him achieve his goal. The match will see his beloved Manchester United battling it out with their arch-rivals Manchester City for the coveted FA Cup trophy.
Ed, who will be accompanied by his parents and sister, said: “It will be a dream come true.”
