How it all started?

The Foundation began in 2008. Originally intended as a one-off event to raise money for Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth which cared and looked after Karen whilst she was ill. This was held at Eastleigh Lakeside Railway on Tuesday 26th August 2008 and raised over £3,500 for the charity.

 

In the years that followed, we continued raising money for a variety of local good causes, primarily those that benefitted cancer patients and their families. In 2018 we decided to focus our efforts solely on raising funds for research into the blood cancer Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
