Hope for Tomorrow

All proceeds from the day will go to support Hope for Tomorrow. This is a charity dedicated to bringing cancer care closer to patients’ homes.

Hope for Tomorrow is dedicated to providing mobile cancer care units to ensure people can access close and convenient cancer care. As a specialist charity, Hope for Tomorrow understands the importance of reducing the stress experienced by patients when undergoing treatment so bringing treatment closer to home is a much-appreciated benefit. In 2007, Hope for Tomorrow launched the world’s first ever Mobile Cancer Care Unit (MCCU) in Gloucester. This charity continues to evolve and now has 14 Units helping thousands of patients across the country.
Each unit costs around £70,000 per annum to
operate, equating to nearly £200 per day.

                   The big THANK YOU

We are limited in terms of available tickets but we will do our best to accommodate everyone who is sponsored. If you are able to sponsor, please go on to the website and follow the sponsor instructions.
