THREE sisters who lost their uncle to a brain tumour are raising money for research into the disease.

Gracie, 11, Ellie, 13, and Lauren Robson, 15, will join the Brain Tumour Research charity’s Walk of Hope on Saturday in memory of Adam Forster.

The farmer and keen hunting man passed away at the age of 42, less than a year after being diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma multiforme brain tumour.

Mr Forster, who farmed at Camperdown, Shotley Bridge, and followed the Braes of Derwent and Tynedale and Haydon hunts, died in May 2014.

Kerry Robson, mum to the girls and sister to Adam, said: “I’m so proud of the girls for their fundraising.

“It’s really important to us to keep Adam’s memory alive and if we can fundraise for research into brain tumours at the same time, then that’s fantastic.

“It’s a devastating disease and I really hope more and more people support Brain Tumour Research and help scientists to find a cure.”

The girls’ 3.9-mile walk is at the Rising Sun Country Park in North Tyneside.
