In 2012 after a couple of years of fundraising for the Bone Cancer Research Trust – still a charity very close to our hearts – we decided to take the plunge and set up our own focusing on people who would be going through a very similar experience to Hannah within our local area.
The Hannah Chamberlain Foundation is formed by 7 of Hannah’s closest friends & family members. Each one of us works a full-time job and volunteer our spare time to make everything we do as much of a success as possible.
Gill Chamberlain – Hannah’s Mum. The provider of the most wonderful monthly team meeting snacks & the charity’s treasurer. Gill manages all things financial and keeps our snack bowls filled up at all times.
Kayleigh Chamberlain – Hannah’s Sister. From a design background Kayleigh creates the most wonderful signs & artwork for us. She is also the Queen of balloons & will always be next to the helium canister on event days.
Jim Chamberlain – Hannah’s Dad. By day Jim works in the antiques business & always brings wonderful auction prizes to the table for any of our events.
Jane Feltham – Hannah’s Aunty. Jane is full of fantastic idea’s & is the most amazing pair of helping hands at any events we create. She’s wonderful at bringing us back on track when the idea’s get a little overly glittery.
Georgina Callen – Hannah’s Best Friend. Content expert by day Georgina co-manages our social media channels & as resident photoshop whizz brings the first drafts for all of our event designs ready for team THCF to make them perfect. She also manages everything on thcf.org.uk keeping the site up to date with all of our news & events.
Sophie Roden – Hannah’s Best Friend. Sophie is always the team member who will remind us of why we do what we do & keeps the focus on the young people we help. She also co-manages all of our social media channels.
Claire Wallbridge – Hannah’s Best Friend. Claire specialises in large point of sale designs within her day job and is always on hand to make sure all of our banners are looking wonderful. She’s also a fantastic note taker so minutes all of our meetings.
