HOPE For A Dry Spell Tracey is a notorious Bon Vivant and renowned Fizzophile, but she decided to donate 3 months of her life to Hope Against Cancer going completely alcohol free to raise money for research. Tracey waved goodbye to booze and farewell to fizz with the support of good friends at Edward Cooper Young who kicked off the Dry Spell sponsoring her for September, Smallman & Son who were her sponsors for October, and Corporate Architecture sponsoring Tracey’s first Dry Wooden Spoon Oktoberfest. The final sober spell was sponsored by Glynis Wright & Co Family Solicitors & Mediators. Tracey raised a phenomenal £6,135 to help fund HOPE’s clinical trials at Leicester Royal Infirmary.
HOPE Through Business host regular lunches at Leicester Racecourse where scientists and patients come to talk to the Leicestershire Business Community about their work.
When Covid-19 meant Stay Home Save The NHS Save Lives, and the postponement of many Charities’ events, HOPE, Soft Touch Arts and The Bodie Hodges Foundation have found themselves supported by a Biz Lockdown WhatsApp group, set up by former East Midlands Lord’s Taverners’ Chairman Ian Guyler, aided and abetted by Tracey’s organisation and creative fundraising.
HOPE Against Cancer’s incredible research facility would not be possible without your donations and this Leicester charity is breaking new ground in the fight against a disease which claims too many of our loved ones.
