UPDATE – June 2017

We have now raised over £40,000 for Brain Tumour Research and would like to thank all our friends and supporters who have helped us reach this figure.


Our grandson, Charlie White, was diagnosed with a rare Brain Tumour in April 2012 at 2 1/2 years old.

The treatment was an operation to have the tumour removed followed by Chemotherapy and radiotherapy but sadly after coping with all this treatment he lost his battle and died peacefully at home in his Mummy’s bed on New Years Eve (31st December 2012). He was such a brave little boy and inspired everyone who came in contact with him.

We have set up this fund raising along with his Mum Abba White and her good friends Sandra and Russell Baker and all money raised will go to Charlie’s Angels for Brain Tumour Research (centre of Excellence at the University of Portsmouth).

Brain Tumours kill more children than any other cancer and they only get 1% of the funding, so PLEASE HELP THE FIGHT.

The first event took place on Friday 22nd March 2013 when Michael White (Charlie’s granddad) had his hair and beard shaved off at Tina’s Hairdressers in Headley (3, High St, GU35 8PP).
