Hannah Frankton – a family affair

“Hannah’s lovely father, Kevin was diagnosed with mesothelioma and Hannah decided that she wanted to raise money to try and give something back to help the experts to continue their research. She was aware that her father was about to embark on a long treatment pathway, which has since involved surgery and radiotherapy, with chemotherapy being the next step.

“She set herself the goal of completing five race for life events which resulted in her raising over £1,400 for cancer research. Having started this challenge, she subsequently realised that there is a dedicated charity for mesothelioma. We therefore decided that our final event of the year would be a garden party for Mesothelioma UK. This took place at my home on 30 September and despite the somewhat damp weather, was attended by a large number of friends and family.

“We had some very generous raffle prizes donated, as well as a bottle tombola, craft, cards and skincare sales, a gin bar, and of course, tea and cakes!”

“We are grateful to the team who have been and continue to be involved in Kevin’s care and hope that the money raised can be used as a small contribution to the ongoing work of Mesothelioma UK. We raised £1,508 thanks to the amazing generosity of everyone.”
