Adam Leveille raises funds in Memory of daughter Maddie

Adam Levielle ran his second 10K Grand East Anglia Run for Anna’s Hope on 7th May in memory of his beautiful daughter Maddie. She was diagnosed with a brain tumour on the brain stem in 2004 March and sadly died on 27th May 2004 with mummy and daddy Julie and Adam by her side.

Maddie is still very much in  Julie and Adam’s  hearts and thoughts and Anna’s Hope really appreciate  Adam’s fund raising efforts. Adam raised £436 in this year’s event and £336 last year. Every penny will go towards funding the charity’s aims.

Well done Adam and thank you for your continued support.

Congratulations Adam and thank you for your fundraising efforts!

‘This year’s Holiday on Ice show ‘Tropicana’, at the Peterborough Exec, was a great success,’ said Carole Hughes from Anna’s Hope. ‘It was a fantastic show with wonderful world class skating set to the music from Barry Manilow. Once again thanks to the generous support from Holiday on Ice , Anna’s Hope was able to provide local children who have a brain tumour and their families with a fun night out and a break from their treatment. It is special that through our continued connection with Holiday on Ice we are able to do this. Feedback from the children and their parents makes it all worthwhile. This year lots of the children dressed up in fairy dresses and got their photograph taken with Olympic Gold medal Ice Skater and Dancing on Ice Judge Robin Cousins. We are proud to say Robin is a friend and a life long supporter of Anna’s Hope. He took time out of his busy schedule last year to visit Addenbrookes with me to meet some of the children on the ward and has a lovely caring rapport with the children and their parents.’

‘The event was a great fundraising success. Robin presented the charity with a cheque for £1000 from Holiday on Ice and an amazing £4000 was collected by the Anna’s Hope Fairies from the generous public. On behalf of Anna’s Hope I want to express my thanks to Holiday on Ice, all those who visited the show and the volunteers who braved the snow to help me. Every penny raised will go directly towards funding the charities aims.’
