A SHORT film featuring the story of Farnham schoolboy Robbie Keville and the charity set up in his name will be aired on Channel 4 tonight.
Robbie, a pupil at Edgeborough School, died from a brain tumour aged just 10 in February 2016 and since then his family have continued raising money in his memory.
To-date the charity Robbie set up prior to his death ‘robbiesrally’ has raised almost £300,000 to fund a new dedicated Robbie’s Rehab service for other young cancer patients based at Southampton General Hospital.
Tonight’s short five-minute film will air at 7.55pm, providing an update on the charity in the build-up to this year’s Stand Up to Cancer telethon.
Immediately afterwards on Stand Up to Cancer’s social media outlets, a Text-to-Donate campaign will begin - exclusively for robbiesrally.
In addition, on Friday, November 3, during ‘The Last Leg’ on Channel 4 between 10pm and 11.05pm, the presenter Adam Hills will briefly talk about robbiesrally and Robbie’s Rehab - again followed by a Text-to-Donate campaign.
