A group of determined walkers will begin a two day 50-mile trek around the Isle of Wight today (Saturday).

They’re taking up the mammoth challenge to help 60,000 people across the UK living with a brain tumour, and raising money for brainstrust.

At the same time, two more groups of walkers will set off in Yorkshire and Scotland, all as part of the Follow the Seagulls challenge.

Will Jones, chief executive of brainstrust, said:

“Being diagnosed with a brain tumour has a devastating impact on people’s lives. For the patient themselves their world is turned upside down, families don’t know where to turn. We understand that it is a genuinely terrifying experience.”

Will added:

“At brainstrust we offer 24/7 personal support from the point of diagnosis onwards and we build resources which help people become stronger and more in control of their lives. Of course to offer this level of service costs a lot of money, resource and time and Follow the Seagulls goes a long way to supporting our work.”
