£6,589raised of £5,000 target by 83 supporters

    Weʼve raised £6,589 to the memory of Jo Hobbs - Beautiful, Brilliant & Brave.

    Witney, United Kingdom
    Funded on Tuesday, 14th March 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    In October 2016, a beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend passed away after battling bowel cancer.

    Jo was inspirational in many, many ways. She was beautiful, brilliant and brave.

    Over the next 18 months, family and friends will be doing various fundraising events to raise money in Jo's memory. These include half marathons, race for life, craft events and the 3 peak challenge!

    The funds raised will be split between 2 charities and Jo's children.
    Details of these are below:

    🔴The Brodey Cancer Centre in Banbury - this is where Jo had her chemo.

    🔴The Dashwood Banbury Academy - this is where Jo's children Millie & Theo go to school. Jo was a parent governor for the school, and was involved in the after school clubs.

    🔴Millie and Theo - Jo's two children.

    Please donate whatever you feel you can, whenever you feel you can.

    Thank you.

      Hi KateI was Jo's oncologist. Jo was an inspiration to us all, and our whole team was very saddened that we did not manage to keep her in our midst and with her wonderful family for longer. Rachel

      Derek and Lesley... I really had no idea that your beautiful daughter died of bowel cancer. My mum died 18 months ago of bowel cancer, so I would love to donate. Lots of love to you all xxx
