Remembering Ellie

Sun 14 February

Ellie was only 11 years old when she was diagnosed with a high grade brain tumour. Today, 14th February 2021, marks 11 years since Ellie died. Her family work incredibly hard to ensure Ellie’s legacy continues to make a difference in the world and she lives on through Ellie’s Fund.

A huge thank you to Ellie’s Fund for raising £12,304.15 in 2020!

Given the year we have had, this is a phenomenal amount to have raised and is testament to the dedication and generosity of Ellie’s Fund supporters around the country.

Ellie started fundraising herself in 2007 and during the three years before she died, raised over £25,000. She inspired so many people and Ellie's Fund Brain Tumour Trust was set up after her death.

In 2017, Yorkshire's Brain Tumour Charity took over the day-to-day running of the charity as a YBTC Fund - Ellie's Fund. The fund continues to provide financial assistance to families who live in Yorkshire and who have a child going through treatment for a brain tumour as well as raising awareness about brain tumours and supporting research projects in the region.

Since 2007, a whopping £338,442 has been raised by, or in memory of, Ellie.

Thank you to Heather, Ellie's Mum, her family, friends and Ellie's Fund recycling volunteers around the UK who have been a part of this amazing achievement.
