about Olivers Army

Olivers Army is a Nottingham based charity that was formed in 2006 to raise money for ALD research
When Mark and Gail Liley's son Oliver died of the rare terminal brain disease known as Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD) in 2006, it inspired Gail to set up a charity in his name.

Oliver was only 14 years old when he died of Adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). He was a bright young boy who loved horse riding.

"He was a very special, talented little boy. He did show jumping and rode for England but it wasn't just about the horses. He was a bright button."
When Gail lost Oliver she decided to raise money for medical research into ALD.
To do this Gail and her family took an unorthodox fundraising route - they decided to lease their local pub - the Durham Ox in Orston.
All the profits go to Oliver's Army, the charitable organisation the family set up in his name.

So far the charity has raised over £270,000 and the money is currently being used to fund projects in France and Germany.
