The sister of a boy who died from a brain tumour is hoping to build a music brand in his honour to help keep his memory alive.

Abbie Tosh, 21, was in the middle of her A-levels when her brother Arran, 13, was diagnosed with a tumour.

Arran died in 2014 and his family went on to set up The Smile of Arran Trust in his honour, to raise money for other people battling brain tumours.

Smile Festival, the charity’s first ever music event, took place in July and now one of the headline stars of the festival, Graeme Clark, will play an intimate gig at what Abbie hopes will be the first of many further music showcases.

Abbie, who is a student studying paediatric nursing in Glasgow, said: “We are planning to keep doing music events. It makes sense because Arran loved music. I want to keep that link alive within the charity.

“It shows who he was and what he was like as a person.

“I go to a lot of gigs myself and from my perspective it is really cool to be organising them and working with so many great people.

“I am really enjoying it and I want to do whatever I can to make the charity grow and get more people involved.”

Fresh from headlining the inaugural Smile Festival, Graeme, known for his time in Scottish band Wet Wet Wet, will be performing at the first ever Smile Presents gig.

The show takes place on Friday, February 2, at AFC Sudbury’s Kings Marsh stadium.

Abbie said: “It will an intimate gig with him where he’ll be singing Wet Wet Wet songs as well as his solo material.

“We have also organised a question and answer session and there is a disco taking place afterwards.

“Graeme is so lovely and wants to help the charity. He wants to do whatever he can to help us.”

Graeme said he was “humbled” to be able to support the charity again.

He said: “Arran and I share a common interest - a love of music.

“It is so exciting for me to be a part of another event in aid of The Smile of Arran Trust.

“Again I am humbled to be able to play a small part in this fantastic cause that raises awareness of a brilliant charity.”

Tickets for the concert £15 plus a booking fee. Doors will open at 6.30pm on Friday, February 2.
