representing the £1,500 grant from the Newcastle Building Society Community
Fund the charity recently received. This will fund a week's holiday for a
child living with cancer and their family in Crete, giving them smiles, hope
and precious memories.

The contract has been signed for the New Retreat!

Ged and Julie's dreams are finally becoming a reality! When they launched the charity back in 2007 it was always their ambition to build a retreat in Saras memory, welcoming children and their families, living with cancer, from all over the UK. 

As of the 6th August 2017 the contract for the building of the retreat between ourselves and Lifestyle Homes has officially been signed.

We couldn't have done this with the continued backing from our amazing supporters and we hope you continue to follow our journey and help raise the funds needed to progress with the building of the retreat.

Saras Hope Foundation volunteers raised a fantastic £201.03 at the collection

at the Metro Centre Gateshead on Saturday 22nd July!

Well done and a huge thank you to our amazing volunteers that helped out!
