Pictured here, is Anna on her 2nd Birthday at her Fairytale Birthday Party, prior to her diagnosis. She loved everything about fairies and always had her fairy dress and wings on at every opportunity! The Charity Logo was designed from an image doodled by Anna’s sister, Sara, who explains: “the logo is shaped upon our memory of Anna at her happiest, smiling and dancing around with her fairy wand and making magic, Fairy Anna.”
The reasoning behind the charity colours are also inspired by Anna, whom despite her Mummy’s attempt to dress her from head to toe in pink, always preferred blue!
Finally the blue flowers found on Fairy Anna’s dress are forget-me-not flowers, to symbolise that Anna will never be forgotten for the magic she brought to the lives of all those who knew her.
The Charity hopes to continue to bring a little hope and magic to other children and young people whose lives are affected by Brain Tumours.
The fourth annual Fairy Ball held in aid of Anna’s Hope was held at the Haycock Hotel, Wansford, on May 15th. Over £20,000 was raised with over 200 people attending the dinner and dance event.
Special performances of the night included fairy statues from Stamford’s Jem’s Hip Hop dance school, plus international harpist Eleanor Turner and Rhiannon Douty and Angus McPheee singing on the night.
Rob and Carole Hughes... and fairies!
“Local sponsors and guests were very generous and every penny will go directly to support children and young people diagnosed with a brain tumour,” said AH co-founder Carole Hughes. “Thank you to everybody who came on the night.”
