We 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.”
