Fun day highlights work of children’s group

6:00am Tuesday 13th May 2014

YOUNGSTERS with brain and spinal tumours met up for a special event in Oxford over the weekend.

They took part in a wide range of activities aimed at adolescents at the Oxsrad sports and leisure centre in Marston on Sunday.

It was organised by Friends of OSCAR, a Didcot-based charity which supports children with brain and spinal tumours and their families.

Sixteen-year-old Hayley Wilkinson from Reading, who was diagnosed with a benign brain tumour in 2000, was one of those who took part.

She said: “It helps us understand people’s problems and improve ours because we know other people are struggling too.

“I couldn’t cope without OSCAR.”
