Anna’s Hope is the partner charity for the BIG Xmas Party 2016

annas-hope-10th-anniversary-logo-jpegWe are very pleased to announce that Anna’s Hope is the partner charity  for the BIG Xmas Party 2016.  Anna’s Hope Hope celebrates its 10th Anniversary this year. It was set up by Carole and Rob Hughes whose daughter Anna Olivia tragically lost her life to a brain tumour aged only 3 years and 8 months in 2006. You may be surprised to learn that Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and young people and for those who survive their lives can be significantly compromised.  Whilst sharing Anna’s journey through treatment Carole and Rob soon realised there was very little support for Anna and children like her.  The charity is run by a few hard working volunteers and Every Penny goes to supporting children with brain tumours.

Once more we will contribute 15% of all tickets sold via groups plus all funds raised from the usual raffle; please come along and help us raise money for Anna’s Hope.

Carole Hughes, founder of Anna’s Hope commented:

“After 10 years, Anna would be so proud at what has been achieved. Now children diagnosed with a brain tumour in the region can receive help from the Anna’s Hope Specialist Nurse who supports the child and parents through the gruelling treatment. They can receive dedicated neuro-rehabilitation support during and after treatment  at Addenbrookes Hospital through a pioneering service the charity co-founded and are the major funder of Brainbow. This service is the first of its kind in the UK and is supported by the Anna’s Hope Therapy Team. The charity also funds Special Days to remember and Parent Groups.”

Going away?

Another year and another success – the Creating Cambridge BIG Summer BBQ 2016 was incredible and that’s all thanks to all of you who attended and our sponsors who made it possible. One of our sponsors was Airport Lynx who, for the second consecutive year, chose to support the event and contribute to making it a phenomenal one.

Howes Percival – It’s the law

It was another great event, attended by amazing organisations and individuals who made this a very special evening. Some where the usual suspects and some were new to the BIG Summer Party. Among the new comers, we had the opportunity to welcome the team at Howes Percival, a leading commercial law firm and one of this year’s sponsors.

If that’s true then Creating Cambridge is getting better by the day as we’re blessed by the company of outstanding organizations such as Howes Percival, an energetic, agile and commercial law firm with lawyers who think outside of the box, delivering innovative and commercial solutions for clients.
