It was with great sadness that we learnt of the passing of our patron Bill Tarmey.

Bill died on Friday November 9th whilst on holiday in Tenerife.

Bill and his family became involved with Brain Tumour Research following the diagnosis of his son Carl.

Through articles in the national press and appearances on TV shows such as All Star Family Fortunes Bill and his family have been massively supportive in raising funds and awareness.

As well as being a national treasure Bill was a warm, compassionate man and all of us will miss him very much.

Our thoughts are very much with Ali, Carl, Sandra and the rest of his family at this time.

RIP Bill - always in our hearts.
