Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

My Mum -Barbara asked me a few weeks ago if I fancied accompanying her in a mission in Portsmouth.....a mission that would see her face her fear of heights and also raise vital funds for her dear Grandsons charity at the same time.   "Yup I'm in Mum" and the date was set - 23rd July 2017 and so very fitting to be using the iconic building in the very town where our brain tumour research funded by our fantastic OYF supporters is well underway and MUST continue!

Ollie once asked me "Daddy, where do you get your money from?" So I explained that I build people's extensions & then invoice them once I've finished. Later that day I took him with me to finish tidying up a job and he was happily pottering around. He knocked on the old lady's door and said "I've done my job today, so can I have some money please? I apologised but she said "Bless!" and gave him £1 from her purse. He was so excited , he came running over to me saying "Look Dad!, Look Dad! A pound!"   

So if everyone reading this could pay Ollie just a £1 once again the research in Portsmouth can keep rolling until answers and a cure is found to keep the cheeky monkeys of the future being just that....cheeky!  

Thank you so much for taking the time to read our page.

Love Simon & my brave Mum - Barbara.  xx
