Phoebe’s Pledge – Inspirational teenager asking North East businesses to support young people with cancer
Phoebe Hedley, from Cleadon, South Tyneside, was treated for desmoid fibromatosis, a rare cancerous tumour, on the Teenage Cancer Trust Unit at the Great North Children’s Hospital in Newcastle. She decided to fundraise for the charity to help other young people with cancer.
Phoebe, now 18, set herself a target of raising £10,000 and undertook a series of events and challenges, from abseiling off the Great North Children’s Hospital and selling hundreds of wristbands, to theatre bucket collections, sponsored silences and bake sales. She was delighted to hit her target at the end of 2017 following an unexpected donation from her aunty and uncle.
Now Phoebe wants businesses in the North East region to help her raise her next £10,000 by pledging themselves to ‘fund a day’ and raise £2,000 each over the coming year.
