When my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 I had the idea to start a charity website that would help people affected by cancer. It wasn’t until my wife’s cancer returned in 2013 that we decided that this time we would make the charity happen.
We launched the charity in 2015, providing a comprehensive website where people with cancer and their families can access a variety of free ‘gifts’ donated by companies and individuals.
These include free breaks in holiday cottages; restaurant meals; a day at the races; hotel stays; theatre tickets; beauty treatments; tickets for attractions… the list is endless.
By the end of 2020 our charity has provided gifts with a value of more than ￡600k to over 12,500 people.
Sadly my wife passed away on Thursday 18th February 2021, peacefully and surrounded by her family.
It was always Fiona’s wish for the charity to continue and my stepdaughter, Francesca, and I will spearhead this in Fiona’s memory.
