An update from Anna’s Hope

Every year we donate 1% of our turnover to charity through our Little clothes BIG change project.

One of the charities we supported last year was Anna’s Hope; an amazing charity working tirelessly to raise awareness of children’s brain tumours.

With the help of our amazing customers, we donated over £18,000 to help fund a therapist at the charity.

   

 

We caught up with Carole and Rob from Anna’s Hope to find out how our donations have helped the charity.

 

How has the Anna’s Hope team been since our donation to you in June?

 

The Charity has continued its momentum and is becoming recognised nationally and globally. In September, we supported an event on Children’s Brain Tumours at Cancer Research UK in Cambridge. The event attracted professionals from around the UK and from the US and Canada.

The generous donation we have received from Frugi has contributed to the funding of the Anna’s Hope Therapy Team (Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech and Language).

24 Children with brain tumours and their families have benefited from 6 months specialist neuro-rehabilitation from the Anna’s Hope Therapy Team.

 

What has Frugi’s support meant to Anna’s Hope this year?

We are a small hard working charity and we need to raise £200k each year to help children with brain tumours.

Support from Frugi has contributed significantly to this target and also raised awareness for Anna’s Hope and brain tumours nationally. We have felt supported and encouraged by your wonderful staff.

You really care about helping others make a difference and we are proud to have been your charity partner this year.

 

Are there any exciting plans for the future from Anna’s Hope?

Anna’s Hope has an action-packed calendar of events in 2018.

A major event is planned on 10 June 2018 when we hope to regain our World Record for the Largest gathering of people dressed as Fairies in one place. It will take place in front of Peterborough Cathedral and we need 900 fairies to regain the World Record we held in 2012. It will be great for raising awareness for the charity and children with brain tumours.
