We are honoured as a charity to have Amy Nuttall’s support as part of our celebrity program, a vital awareness role for the work we do.

Amy and her family have a personal connection to our cause, having tragically lost her beloved mum, Elaine, to a glioblastoma brain tumour last October.   

Amy said: “Since losing my dear mum on the 30th October, it’s safe to say there’s been a gaping hole left in my life.

“I know that she would have absolutely wanted me to use my platform in any way that I can to do good and help raise awareness for this awful disease.

About Amy Nuttall

Amy’s love of acting started in her early years. She performed lead roles with the National Youth Music Theatre in her early teens and at just 16 she was credited as the youngest ever understudy for the lead role in The Phantom of the Opera.  

A hugely accomplished singer, she has sung at The Royal Albert Hall, Royal Festival Hall in London and at Old Trafford.  She released a debut album as a classical vocalist, Best Days, in 2005 and it was nominated for a Classic Brit Award in 2006.  

Her screen career has gone from strength to strength with acclaimed roles in Emmerdale, Downton Abbey, and the recent highly praised Mr. Bates vs the Post Office.  

She continues to tread the theatrical boards as well and past roles have seen her perform both in the West End and nationally in the likes of My Fair Lady, Cabaret, Guys and Dolls, All My Sons, Noises Off and many others, as well as starring in BBC radio 4 dramas. 

What the future holds

Amy’s support for all that we do, through Brain Tumour Awareness Month (BTAM) and beyond for all our 2024 plans and ambitions, will mean so much to our community.  

Together we will raise vital awareness and drive urgent change for everyone affected by a brain tumour diagnosis.

“To become a part of this wonderful community, The Brain Tumour Charity, fills me with much pride and I hope very much that we can bring some much-needed change and awareness.”
