Our Vision Of HOPE ​​​​​​​ by Sally

​​​​​​​In 2016, a few of my friends and I really wanted to run a 10k Race For Life to raise money for Cancer Research.  Each and every one of us has been devastated or affected by cancer.  Tragically, both Roxanne and Trovy lost their mums to breast cancer too soon for them to ever see their grandchildren.  Romy was diagnosed with the same in 2014.  Lauren is her teenage daughter.  On a personal note, my own amazing husband, David, has battled against non-Hodgkins lymphoma for the past 5 years.   

After two months of training in Hatfield Forest we went from a slow walk to an alright running pace!  We all completed the June 10k at Bury St Edmunds and we raised over £3000.  

​​​​​​​
At Elan, we set about creating the HOPE fragrance with our promise to donate £5 from every candle and diffuser sold in the future to a cancer charity via our JustGiving page.  It's early days and our hope is that we can raise enough to help make a difference.  Our chosen charity is Cancer Research UK, who organise the Pink days and with your support that figure will just keep on growing!
