Annabel’s Angels is a registered charitable trust raising funds and increasing support for Patients, carers and families living with cancer in Derby.

Annabel was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in April 2012, not long before her 40th Birthday. Her cancer diagnosis came as a horrific shock, yet she made friends with other women via the Macmillan Online Forum so to never burden her family and close friends with worries about her illness.

Annabel’s Angels originates from a group of people all affected by Cancer. Annabel’s Angels is a Derby based registered charitable trust raising funds to support local cancer patients and their families. This includes:

  1. Fundraising to purchase items to help improve the quality of life for cancer patients and their families living in Derby.
  2. Fundraising  to support local cancer self help groups and cancer associated initiatives in Derby.
  3. Developing an interactive online support service to help reduce isolation experienced by cancer patients and families in Derby.

Annabel’s Angels has a limited number of free places for runners choosing to raise funds for the charity. To run and raise for Annabel’s Angels please fill out this simple registration form here (click to proceed). Please understand that these free places are limited.

Simon Hancox, Chair of Annabel’s Angels, said:

“The 2017 Derby 10 Mile was a great success for the charity – runners and supporters raised almost £3000 on the day. But it’s not just about the donations. Seeing our logo and information in the build up to the event, seeing it, hearing it, feeling it on the day and seeing the logo on the backs of the 1000 race finishers’ t-shirts around Derby and beyond has all helped to significantly raise our profile. I’d like to think we’re seen as a professional local cancer support charity and it’s through effective partnerships such as working with the Derby 10 team that boosts our brand awareness, increases our public confidence and encourages more families living with cancer to get in touch for support.”

 

“I’m looking forward to running the race again this year, and I’m going to encourage some of our on running trustees and possibly even our patron, Craig Ramage, to take part too.”
