Charity website launched
The Smile of Arran Trust which was set up after the death of Arran Tosh in June last year has launched its website, hoping to spread its message and raise even more funds to support children with brain tumours.
Arran died last year after an opticians appointment led to the discovery of a large brain tumour.
The 13-year-old was well known for his charity work and for his musical talent.
The website, www.smileofarran.org/ has been set up to let people know Arran’s story.
His mother Alison recorded an emotional video sharing the heartache of Arran’s death, his own fundraising efforts and how the trust now hopes to help others.
It will also act as a platform to share the many fundraising schemes taking place across the country. One of these schemes was the recent hair shave of Nikki Andrews-Ross, which raised £400.
Mrs Tosh said: “The website is the final piece in the jigsaw.
“It will be nice to be able to share all the fundraising efforts that are being done and show where the money is going.”
Mrs Tosh also announced the charity had become partners with cancer charity CLIC Sargent, who will distribute the money to help children with brain tumours.
