Saras Hope Foundation

Saras Hope Foundation providing holiday breaks for children living with cancer, giving them Smiles, Hopes an Precious Memories.

Founded 2007

  • Mission statement

    Sara’s Hope Foundation, inspired by the late Sara Hoburn, aims to successfully manage a holiday retreat in Crete offering respite for children and young people with cancer and their families.

    Our mission is to give families from the UK, affected by the devastating impact of cancer, a much needed break from long hospital stays, traumatic medical procedures and cancer related treatments – so that they may spend quality time together recuperating and enjoying life as a ‘normal’ family – strengthening relationships and creating lasting happy memories. Our first family visted Sara's Retreat in June 2011 and up to October 2015 we will have sent a further 60 children living with cancer, and their families, to the Island.

    We are dedicated to giving a personal service to each child/young person and their family, and in memory of Sara, giving them ‘smiles, hope and precious memories’.
