Lightwater couple, Karen and Kevin Capel, set up Christopher’s Smile in 2008. A charity to raise funds for research into new treatments for childhood cancer, a neglected area of cancer research.
In January this year, reported in Camberley News, the charity hit the £1 million fundraising mark. To reach that target using only volunteers, requires dedication, tenacity, and no little courage.
I noted today in my Facebook page was this from Sharon Carter, who said this below, and posted this video of Karen and Kevin being interviewed on BBC
Great interview Kevin and Karen Capel, really getting the message across. I hope the general public are starting to understand how important your reasearch is and that it’s charities like Christopher’s Smile funding so much more than the charities they probably assume are in the lead.
