RUNNING MAN CHALLENGE RAISES £3,000 FOR ANNA

The Isles of Scilly Police's Running Man challenge has raised £3,000 for Anna.

The video was one of many fundraising efforts by islanders for friend and former resident Anna Hambrook, who requires Immunotherapy for a rare form of cancer that is not available through the National Health Service.

 

The dance was performed on Porthmellon Beach in May with members of the fire service, ambulance and coastguard in attendance, as well as around 50 members of the public.

 

Elsewhere, Anna's schoolfriend Andy Chiverton completed the Bristol Sprint Triathlon last weekend, raising more than £1,100. 

 

Anna is the daughter of Graham and Penny Browning, who ran Wingletang Guest House on St Mary's for many years. She currently lives in Cornwall with her husband Dan, who spent his teenage years on Tresco, and their three children. 

 

Anna's friends from Cornwall started fundraising to help her finance the Immunotherapy and island residents joined the effort by creating Scilly Hu-ha (Help Us Help Anna).

 

Other recent efforts include a stall at the Rotary Club Fun Day, an auction for two nights at the New Inn and a collection by the Five Islands School on May Day.
