Natalie Preston

Wed, Jun 12th 2019 at 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

at The Bold Hotel


Now aged 29, Natalie Preston was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at just nine months old and her parents were told she would never walk, talk, sit up or be able to be educated. That wasn’t the end of her problems. Natalie later developed scoliosis at age 14, which caused severe curvature of her spine. She underwent a 12-hour surgery seven years later and was told afterwards by doctors that if she not had the operation, she wouldn’t have lived to 30.

It was through Brainwave that she first met singer Olly Murs, who has been a patron of the charity for eight years.

Natalie now wants to thank Brainwave for all their help and support and has challenged herself to go over the O2 arena roof in a wheelchair alongside Olly to raise £30,000 for the charity. Natalie has now completed the challenge and has raised over £17,000 towards her target.
