THE secretary of Northumberland County Show is hoping a Halloween Ball will help her en route to her target of raising £20,000 in memory of her brother.

Kerry Robson has raised more than £15,000 for the Brain Tumour Research charity since her brother, Adam Forster, died from a brain tumour aged 42, in 2014.

Adam was diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) after experiencing pins and needles in his arm.

The tumour was inoperable and despite undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy, the farmer and keen hunting man died less than a year later, in May 2014.

Kerry said: “It’s been four years since we lost Adam, but he is still so dearly missed. I’ll never forget his strength, determination and bravery, and he continues to inspire me every day.”

Now Kerry is organising a Halloween Ball at the Derwent Hotel in Allensford, which will be transformed into a haunted house on Saturday, October 27, with live music, an auction and raffle and a spooky photobooth.

Tickets can be bought from Kerry by emailing
