OSCAR’s PBTC Announces First Charity Patron

We are thrilled to announce the patronage of Sky News presenter Sarah Hewson. We are privileged that Sarah has chosen to support OSCAR’s PBTC, as we continue our work to provide much needed funding towards research into paediatric brain tumours.

Sarah presents Sky News Tonight alongside Adam Boulton and previously held the role of Royal Correspondent, interviewing six senior members of the British royal family including Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry, and three Prime Ministers (David Cameron, Gordon Brown and Tony Blair). Sarah also covered the announcement of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s engagement and their subsequent wedding, along with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. She interviewed Prince Andrew at 50 and, exclusively, his daughter Beatrice on her father’s landmark birthday. Sarah’s role saw her follow Prince William on his first official trip to New Zealand and Australia, interview Prince Charles during his and Camilla’s tour of South America, and travel to New York as Prince Harry made his first visit to the site of the World Trade Centre.

Sarah says, “Reading Oscar’s story for the first time, I was moved to tears and inspired by his bravery and determination to help others in the midst of his own pain and suffering. When I met his mum, Marie, I saw instantly where that determination and compassion came from. The charity has already achieved so much in a short space of time but there is lots more to do and I am proud and excited to be involved with the charity as it looks to fund cutting edge research to ensure that children in the future don’t have to suffer like Oscar. “
