Lily’s Rainbow Fund was set up in June 2023 in memory of 4-year-old Lily Harley

It is a supporter group in aid of OSCAR’s Paediatric Brain Tumour Charity and exists to provide support and care for children with brain tumours and their families, raise awareness of signs and symptoms to aid early diagnosis, and to fund research into better and kinder treatments.

Lily’s Rainbow Fund will be setting up lots of different events for their supporters to get involved in, so please keep checking back for details as and when they are finalised.

If you want to get in touch with them to fundraise, volunteer or donate then contact Emily or Josh at Lily’s Rainbow Fund, or Phil at OSCAR’s PBTC (

You can also get updates via @lilysrainbowfund on Instagram and Facebook, and via @lilyrainbowfund on Twitter. You can also donate here.

We are open to ideas

Our aim is to raise as much money as possible in Lily’s name to help others in her situation. Our other aim is to raise as much awareness as possible around the disease.

If you have any ideas, however big or small, we want to hear them.

If you are a business wanting to take part in any of our events, or sponsor them, please let us know. Your support would be massively appreciated and would make a big difference.

If you are a school, wanting to hear about the work Lily’s Rainbow Fund and OSCAR’s Paediatric Brain Tumour Charity does, then please let us know. We have lots of ways we can work together.
