Anna's Hope

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

The charity 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.


Brain tumours are the biggest cancer killer of children and young people and for those who survive their lives can be severely compromised.  Anna’s Hope are passionate about making a difference to the lives of these children and young people  by providing support and rehabilitation during and after treatment to help them reach their full potential. They do this with the Anna’s Hope Therapy Team  and a pioneering new service they co-founded called Brainbow. They have been helping these children for the last 10 years and now help around 100 children each year. 

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