The Sarah Hope Foundation Runs a Retreat on the Greek Island of Crete to offer Normal Family days for Children Suffering from Cancer. The charity is run by Sara’s parents Ged and Julie, who earlier this year moved along with son Mark, 21, and six-year-old daughter Faye, to Crete to man the holiday home full-time.
The charity was set up after Sara Hoburn, lost a two-year battle with cancer at the age of 16 in 2001. Her dream was to help other sick children lead normal family lives. She is the inspiration behind Saras Hope Foundation, which opened the retreat offering respite for youngsters with cancer.
The holiday retreat was opened after the UK based charity raised £170,000. It aims to generate £500,000 in the coming years to sustain the work it does. “I love watching the amazement on the children’s faces and I always have a bit of fun with them,” said Alan, 26 a young man working at the Crete summer retreat.
