Ray Johnstone tragically lost his son Shaun in 1998 when he was only 16 years old. Shaun died within five months after complaining to his GP about headaches and shaking in his left hand. Unfortunately nothing was done and neither Shaun nor his parents were told of the possible connection. The day before Shaun died ‘psychosomatic’ was written on his medical notes.

Ray and his wife Paula have been tireless fundraisers for The Brain Tumour Charity (Shaun’s page) since that time, and also with the help of a lot of other fundraisers have now raised over £70,000! A great many activities and events have been planned and undertaken and Ray has been successful in helping to raise the profile of The Brain Tumour Charity in his local area of North Yorkshire.

Ray and Paula are always happy to hear from people wishing to help them with their fundraising efforts and you can contact Ray and Paula on tel: 01423 325394 or to email, click here.

Cheque Presentation

On the 1st March, Shaun’s Dad Ray Johnstone and his wife Paula presented Newcastle University researcher, Professor Steve Clifford with a cheque for £30,000. The £30,000 raised by the group will be channelled specifically into research into medulloblastoma brain tumours.
