Remembering Ellie - 10 years on

Remembering Ellie - 10 years on


Presented by: Twilight Productions & David Nicholson

The evening is being presented by Twilight Productions and David Nicholson, who
have donated their time, and the YMCA theatre has kindly donated the theatre
for the evening.

'Remembering Ellie; 10 years on' is an evening of family entertainment, in memory of 14 year old Ellie Othick-Bowmaker, who died on Valentine's Day 2010, after a 3 year
battle with a brain tumour.

Ellie was diagnosed with a grade 4 Glioblastoma in February 2007, aged 11, and
given 6 months to live; and LIVE she did, making lots of memories with family
and friends and raising £25000 for various charities before passing away
peacefully at Martin House Hospice in the early hours of February 14th, 3 years
and one day after her first symptom.

'Ellie's Fund' became a registered charity in September 2010, raising funds for research
into brain tumours and supporting families across Yorkshire and the Humber who
have a child affected by a brain tumour, and families within the Borough of Scarborough who have a child affected by any cancer. In 2017 we became part of the largest brain tumour charity in Yorkshire - BTRS (Brain Tumour Research & Support Across Yorkshire) and our main focus is now raising funds for research through our successful recycling initiative, though grants are still
available for young adults who have a primary brain tumour, in Ellie's name,
via BTRS, as well.

As a stand alone charity 'Ellie's Fund - Brain Tumour Trust' raised almost £300,000;
Ellie's legacy is the hope we can bring to other brain tumour patients through
the research we are helping to fund - and Ellie's memory lives on with it.

This event is raising funds for BTRS, for research into brain tumours.
