Raising £250,000 in memory of Katie Harvey

Life in full swing

Katie Harvey passed away in July 2017 after a 3 year battle with bowel cancer aged just 38. At no point in the last few years did she stop living her life, and unbelievable as it may seem, she barely even let it, or her treatment for it, interrupt her life or those of her young daughters.
From the moment Katie found out she had cancer she resolved to continue to smile, to fight and never give up. She lived with extraordinary bravery, fun, courage & her bewitching smile through this time. Whether it was during the periods of normality, chemo or surgery, she continued to inspire people with her generosity and love for life.
Throughout her life she believed passionately in equality, in helping others and seeing the good in all of us. There are few like Katie. She was an incredible friend, daughter, sister, mother & wife. She was a world record holder, a gamesmaker during the London Olympics, a charity fundraiser and the life & soul of every party or wedding she attended.   Her passion for life was contagious as was her support for the 2 charities that meant so much to her - The Ickle Pickles Children's Charity and The Royal Trinity Hospice.

Katie & her husband Ben spoke at length about raising money for the charities she felt so passionately about.

All Katie asked was that people do something that challenges them, something that takes them out of their comfort zone, oh and it has to be fun!   Bake a huge cake, climb a massive mountain, sit in a tub of beans - just do it with a smile  in the knowledge that monies raised are making a huge difference. 

Go on.  Live a little.  Take a full swing.  #bemorekatie

We are so very grateful to Katie and Ben to be benefitting from Life in Full Swing. More information about Life in full swing is available on their website:
