  1. Hi there, please would you add our North East Charity to the list.

    Saras Hope Foundation is a small North East based charity which was set up in 2007 in memory of Sara Hoburn who lost her battle with cancer in 2001 at 16 years old. Founded by Sara’s parents, the charity was officially launched and registered in 2008. The team work tirelessly to raise the funds and the profile of the charity so it is able to meet its main objective which is to manage a holiday retreat in Crete offering respite for the families of young people affected by cancer. Since June 2011 over 110 children and their families have visited, and we have 14 families who will be visiting in the coming months.
    Registered Charity No. 1123099
