It is with great sadness that we have to announce our founder Fiona Coldron passed away on Thursday 18th February, 2021, peacefully and surrounded by her family.

Fiona, who having first-hand experience of living with cancer since 2007, knew the importance of having ‘Something To Look Forward to’ and together with her family made it her life’s mission to help others.

We know it was her wish for us to continue the charity and Fiona’s daughter and husband will spearhead this in Fiona’s memory.

We are proud to be supported by a range of brands, influencers and bloggers who have been instrumental in helping us source gifts, experiences, and essential items for those affected by cancer.

Cat Sims aka @notsosmugnow is an Instagram blogger covering the world of patenting, adulthood, relationships and mental health.

Cat created the #GiftMatch campaign which involves her only accepting gifts from brands if they donate the same or similar item to charity and we are honoured to be one of the recipients!

“There’s no denying it: influencer marketing works. It’s a win for the brand and the influencer but here’s the thing….Isn’t it possible to do more? To do some good? I founded the #GIFTMATCH campaign to turn a win-win situation into win-win-win because I wanted charities to benefit too”.
