This auction is being held to promote awareness and raise vital funds for two fantastic charities – The Caron Keating Foundation and Target Ovarian Cancer.
All proceeds will be split between the two – find out more about these amazing causes below.
A family run charity in Caron’s memory to support all types of cancer causes
The Caron Keating Foundation is a fund raising charity set up by Gloria Hunniford and her sons Paul and Michael. It makes a considerable difference to many individuals and families affected and dealing with cancer, through assisting small but significant cancer charities throughout the UK, financing professional carers and support groups.
Its a family run foundation with Gloria Hunniford as the Administrator and the only costs are one part time secretary, with all the money raised going to cancer charities. So every penny donated is accounted for and spent wisely.
Our aim is to give a significant number of grants to small charities throughout Britain, as opposed to trying to raise money towards huge building projects or research which involves millions.
We try to make a difference by helping to fund pieces of machinery which detect faster, counselling services, many different types of hospice care both at home and in the hospice itself, drivers to take cancer patients to and from treatment centres, complementary therapies to help with pain control and bereavement counselling, specialist beds and chairs to give physical relief and ‘syringe drivers’ used for giving pain relief.
Anything to help cope with this hideous disease.
“Gloria Hunniford and The Caron Keating Foundation would like to give their heartfelt thanks to world-renowned guitarist Brian May of Queen who has made this wonderful gesture in putting his personal guitar he used on the hit single I’m A Woman up for Auction, to help raise money for our Charity and for Target Ovarian Cancer. The money raised by this magnanimous gesture will go to help people dealing with Cancer, all over the country. We cannot thank Brian, WOMAN and Alpha enough.”
