It will fund research into brain tumours.

A man from Bexley who lost his life to a brain tumour has inspired friends and family to set up a fundraising group in his memory.

The group has helped raise more than £30,000 to fund research into the disease.

Nick Cotton was 29 when he was diagnosed, passing away in Greenwich & Bexley Community Hospice last year.

The Nick Cotton Foundation was set up in October 2013 to raise funds for national charity Brain Tumour Research.

Nick’s wife Rachael, along with his friends, have since organised a number of successful fundraising events.

On May 9 a quiz night will be held at the Working Men’s Club on Main Road, Sidcup.

Mrs Cotton said: “The previous quizzes have raised a combined total of £7,000 each with in excess of 160 attendees.

“My Dad, Alan Sinclair, will again act as quiz master.

“We are charging £6 per person with each team consisting of six to eight players.

“Dad pitches the questions at all levels and we welcome anyone.

“It is testament to all of Nick’s family and friends that the Nick Cotton Foundation has already raised so much.”

She added: “I know Nick would have been proud of everyone, and thanks to everyone’s generosity, whether that be with their time or via donations, his wish to help others suffering from this condition will be realised too.”
