Bringing hope to life...

supported by 'The Karen Trust'


We run a number of events throughout the year. Please ensure you keep connected to enjoy the fun.



We held a CHARITY ZUMBATHON® on SUNDAY 17TH JUNE 2012 at Vauxhall Recreation Club in Luton to raise funds for supporting terminally ill cancer patients!

It was a 3 hour Zumba Party for all of the family!

Zumba is an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness! And our supporters experienced over 8 professionally qualified Zumba instructors led by a lovely local instructor Fiona Payne that couldn't wait to get you laughing, dancing and having fun!! Our instructors very kindly gave up their time to help us raise much needed funds, but more importantly to get us active and have loads of fun!

Yet another fantastic day was had at our 3rd Annual Family Fun Run in the lovely surroundings of Wardown Park, Luton! We had over 200 runners, family members, kids, supporters and friends join us for the 2.5KM & 5KM run.

We would also like to say a massive thank you to all the family, friends and supporters of Josh Carrick who supported our run in memory of Josh. Josh died recently at the tender age of just 23 from Testicular Cancer. We would like to send our condolences and that our thoughts are with you and we celebrated in Karen’s and Josh’s memory.

We all raised a whopping £18k plus from this event!
