Why was Red Wellies set up?

Lisa Wiles

The Lisa Wiles Red Wellies Brain Tumour Support Fund (Red Wellies) is a small charity from King’s Lynn, Norfolk. We are dedicated to raising funds for the ongoing research of Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM), the most deadly form of primary brain tumour.

The charity was formed in 2012 in memory of Lisa Wiles, a 43 year old mother of three. Lisa was cruelly taken from her adoring parents, children, siblings and nieces after an inspirational, 14 month battle with GBM.

Lisa knew nothing could save her, but still wanted to fundraise for cancers, particularly brain cancer. Once we’d lost her we knew we needed to carry on her good work, whilst keeping her memory alive. With your support we can do both.
