Scarborough Girl To Be Honoured 10 Years After Cancer Battle

Scarborough Girl To Be Honoured 10 Years After Cancer Battle

Published by Karen Liu at 7:01am 18th January 2020.

A girl from Scarborough, who died after a three year battle with cancer, is being honoured tonight.

14-year-old Ellie Othick-Bowmaker passed away on Valentine's Day 10 years ago.

She was diagnosed with grade four Glioblastoma, which is an aggressive brain tumour, in 2007.

A show is being held at the YMCA theatre in Scarborough at 7.30pm called 'Remembering Ellie: 10 years on'.

It's an evening of family entertainment which is being presented by Twilight Productions and David Nicholson.

Ellie's mum, Heather Othick, said:

"It felt fitting to honour her memory, not only what she achieved during those last three years, but her life before that; the person that she was and everything that she achieved.

So when one of her friends suggested that Twilight put a show on for us, I jumped at the chance.

Ellie loved musicals, she loved going to the West End, or anywhere, and seeing shows."

Heather's been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Karen Liu:

Heather would like to thank all those people who donated a raffle prize and have helped organise the event.

You can get tickets here: or you can turn up at the door and buy tickets there, if there are tickets still available.

This event is raising funds for BTRS (Brain Tumour Research & Support Across Yorkshire), for research into brain tumours.
