We’re delighted to support the work of the Katy Holmes Trust, if you too can help them in any way, no matter how big or how small you can rest assured that it’s for the best of causes.
As Paula Holmes (Katy’s Mum) told us:
The Katy Holmes Trust was set up in memory of beautiful 10 year old Katy Holmes who sadly lost her life after only a 3 month battle in January 2012 to a rare and inoperable brain tumour. Her parents, David and Paula Holmes, searched everywhere for answers and discovered that brain tumours are the BIGGEST cancer killer of children under 4 in the UK. They also found that research into this area is woefully under-funded with less than 1% of the national cancer spending being allocated to brain tumours. We do not know what cause brain tumours or how to effectively treat them all so the Katy Holmes Trust has been set up to fund paediatric brain tumour research.
We are very fortunate that thanks to a matched funding opportunity available through the research we are funding via the Brain Tumour Charity we can turn every £1 donated into £2.28! This is a great way to more than double your money and help us find that cure quicker!
