Scrap Car Comparison is delighted to be supporting Hannah’s Appeal this March and helping to provide holiday homes for families with children needing treatment in oncology wards.
Set up in 2008 in memory of Hannah Westbrook, a young girl who sadly lost her battle with cancer aged 10, Hannah’s Appeal provides over 150 break aways per year in a number of luxurious holiday homes in parks throughout the New Forest.
Offering children with cancer and their families, Hannah’s Appeal provides an opportunity to have a fun and relaxed experience, while staying within a 30-minute radius of their hospital. The sites offer indoor and outdoor pools, restaurants, arcades and clubhouses with entertainment for the whole family.
During Hannah’s illness, she underwent an intense course of chemotherapy, stem cell treatment and radiotherapy, yet despite this she never lost her spirit and remained a happy, caring and loving daughter, sister and friend to all who knew her. Never complaining once, she instead put her focus into fundraising, and raised over £10,000 in just 18 months for the Piam Brown Ward, the children’s cancer ward at Southampton General Hospital.
Hannah’s Appeal continues the work that Hannah started, and you can support their much-needed work by choosing to donate through our Donate-A-Car scheme. When selling your car with Scrap Car Comparison you can choose to donate some – or even every single penny – of the profits to our featured charity. We’ve worked with some of the biggest charities in the country and raised thousands of pounds towards important work across a huge spectrum of important causes. For further information on how this scheme works, we’ve put together a handy FAQ document, which can be found here.
With your help and donations, Hannah’s Appeal can continue to be a light in what can be an incredibly difficult time for families, and make sure that the spirit of Hannah continues to make a positive difference to those in need.
