Paul Nicholson wins Healthcare Volunteer of the Year award

Paul Nicholson, has won the Healthcare Volunteer of the Year award for his work and commitment to The Brain Tumour Charity, following his own ongoing battle with a low grade brain tumour.

“It’ll be too late for me, but I truly believe with all the work and research it is doing, in the future it will achieve its goal of finding a cure for brain tumours,” said Paul.

“I love going into The Charity’s offices to help out as a volunteer. This award isn’t just for me, it’s also for The Brain Tumour Charity and the other volunteers.”

Paul discovered he had a slow growing brain tumour while in the Army in 2002.

Since leaving the Army after 22 years of service, Paul has dedicated a lot of his spare time to volunteering at The Brain Tumour Charity office in Farnborough in order to help others. He also completed the 2015 London Marathon to raise funds for The Brain Tumour Charity.

Sarah Lindsell said: “We are all delighted that Paul’s efforts have been recognised by the Charity Staff and Volunteer Awards. Paul is a constant support to both staff and fellow volunteers and always goes the extra mile.

“He remains an incredible source of inspiration to staff at The Charity, reminding us all to stay determined in our fight against brain tumours, because a cure can’t wait.
