The Derby 10 Mile race will provide a fantastic fundraising platform for charities and we encourage all our runners to run in support of one of our charities listed below.

2017 Charity –  Derby 10 Mile official charity partner for 2017

Annabel’s Angels 



Annabel’s Angels originates from a group of people all affected by cancer. They and the late Annabel Hancox from Derby were all diagnosed with cancer during 2012. Annabel’s Angels is a Registered Charitable Trust aiming to raise funds and increase support for patients, families and carers living with cancer in Derby. This includes:

1) Fundraising to purchase items or services 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.

The charity is 100% volunteer-led with all income generated by donations. The charity works closely with Royal Derby Hospital, Macmillan Cancer Support and other cancer related support services to improve the quality of life for families in and around Derby living with cancer. BBC Radio Derby’s Craig Ramage became patron of the charity in September 2015.

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 2016 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.”
