ellie mai fund


The Ellie Mai Fund is due to be wound up in February 2024 as Ellie would be 18 years old.

We will be holding a Special General Meeting on Wednesday 24 January 2024 in the lounge at The King Billy, Cottingham at 7:30 pm

If you would like to attend, please feel free to do so

We would like to thank you for all your support over the years, it is very much appreciated.


The Ellie Mai Fund was  launched by John and Lisa Mowforth after the sad loss of their daughter. Ellie was diagnosed with a rare tumour known as a diffuse brainstem glioma in 2012.

Initially the fund was set up to raise money for Wish Upon A Star and the Brain Tumour Trust as a thank you for the support given to John, Lisa and Ellie.

The fund now functions as its own charity to help others who find themselves in a similar situation.
