Objectives

The Lisa Wiles Red Wellies Brain Tumour Support Fund (Red Wellies) was set up in 2012 in memory of Lisa Wiles, a mother of 3, who died of Glioblastoma Multiforme. Though she knew it wouldn't help her, Lisa wanted to raise money to help others. 

When we lost her we, her family and friends, knew we needed to continue her good, selfless work. This is where Red Wellies was born. 

Since 2012, we have raised thousands through various fundraisers and events. We have two celebrity patrons, Caroline Quentin and Lesley Dunlop and have just donated £50,000 to Addenbrookes hospital for a research laboratory to be opened in Lisa's name. 

We are based in King's Lynn, Norfolk.
