  • Welcome to Anna's Hope

    Anna’s Hope is the leading children's brain tumour charity in the East Of England. We are committed to giving hope to children and young people diagnosed with a brain tumour.

    It was inspired by Anna Olivia Hughes, who tragically died from a brain tumour aged only three years and eight months, and was set up by Anna's parents Rob and Carole Hughes and her five Godparents in October 2006.

  • We are passionate about making a difference

    We are passionate about making a difference to the lives of children and young people who have a brain tumour by providing support and rehabilitation during and after treatment to help them reach their full potential.

    Anna’s Hope is run by a small hard working group of volunteers. None of us are paid so EVERY PENNY donated goes to helping children with brain tumours.

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.
