FAMILY and friends of a man who died from a brain tumour are backing a campaign launched for Brain Tumour Awareness Month.
Jon Redding, from Hitchin, died in October at the age of 36.
His family continued a campaign he initiated to get more money plugged into research, and have this month been marking Brain Tumour Awareness Month in his memory.
As well as supporting an initiative by The Brain Tumour Charity which sells bandanas, they have been selling crocheted octopuses knitted by Jon’s sister Niki, to raise funds.
And Jon’s niece Ruby has also been helping out by donating her pocket money to the charity.
