Charity Challenge 2017-2018

In Memory of Jean Parker, who lost her battle with Cancer in October 2016



In July 2016 Jean and Dave Parker organised a Clay Pigeon Shoot in Devon to assist close family friend Emma Schooling in raising funds for CoppaFeel and her 58km Icelandic Trek. In all the fundraising reached £3600.

Sadly in October 2016 Jean lost her battle with cancer so in Memory of Jean,  grand daughter Gracie and mum Emma are undertaking a 200km challenge across the ice covered lands of Sweden, being transported by a team of sled pulling Husky Dogs. In February 2018 Gracie and Emma will be responsible for their own team of Husky's, camping in minus temperatures and most importantly raising Money for Coppafeel and Rowcroft Hospice : both charities close to Jeans heart.


This took place on April 28th 2017 at Teignmouth Golf Club

Thankyou to everyone who attended the evening and bought a ticket. 

We raised just under £5000 which has been split between Rowcroft and CoppaFeel.

About us

It takes time, compassion, patience, medical expertise and money to help patients and families make the most of every day, but every year we help over 2,200 people living with life-limiting illnesses in South Devon to do just that.

By providing comfort, support and specialist services in our patients’ homes, in the community and at our Inpatient Unit in Torquay, we enable families to share precious and joyful moments when they are needed most – whether it’s a beautiful wedding, remarkable reunion, simple thank you or gentle cuddle.

At our premises in Torquay, our team of doctors, nurses, social workers and a range of other health and social care professionals provide specialist care in our Inpatient Unit.

We also care for out-patients and their loved ones, offering therapiesbereavement support and medical consultation in an environment that helps patients and families make the most of precious time together.

From Dartmouth to Dawlish, we care for ¾ of our patients in their own homes with a team of community nursessocial workersoccupational therapists and bereavement counsellors delivering a holistic approach tailored to individual needs.

Last year it cost £8.3 million to provide our services. As an independent charity, more than 70% of our funding comes from the incredible generosity of local people, without whom we would not be able to fund our work. We’re determined to make sure every penny raised from your donations continues to help patients and their loved ones make the most of every moment they have together.

Together, we can make every day the best day possible

What we do

We’re on a mission to stamp out late detection of breast cancer. We ensure that you know the signs and symptoms of breast cancer, know what your boobs look and feel like normally, check your boobs regularly throughout your lifetime and have the confidence to see a doctor if you notice anything that doesn’t feel right for you.

Kris’ Story (Founder of CoppaFeel)

As nuclear–bomb–sized curveballs go, this was right up there with the best of ’em. Discovering a lumpy boob in June 2008, Kris did the done thing and took it straight to her GP, being sent away on the basis that, at her young age, it was bound to be hormonal. Six months and a lovely stint of travelling later, the ‘hormones’ still remained – so, when Kris’s no–bullshit mum marched her right back to the GP, she demanded a referral. But of course there’d be nothing to worry about, because breast cancer is an older woman’s disease, right? Wrong.Eight months on, following a frustrating fight to discover just what the hell was happening beneath her bumpy bust, Kris discovered not only that she had breast cancer, but that it had spread to her spine. Kris was – is – at stage four, the most advanced type of cancer. There is no stage five.

Straight away, Kris was thrown into a routine of radiotherapy, five months of chemotherapy, and yet more radiotherapy. So long, carefree fun. So long, travelling. So long, boobs. So long, hair. So long, normal twentysomething life.

But as Kris became stable, the curveball remained. How couldn’t it – I mean, come on! She was 23! How the bejeezers could this have happened? Never one to rest on her laurels (read: keep quiet for long), Kris turned her shock and anger into pure kick–ass, immediately making it her full–time mission to encourage her friends, her generation, and YOUNG PEOPLE everywhere to keep hold of their wonderful, carefree lives by getting to know their boobs – and appreciating the fact that, shitty a reality as it may be, breast cancer can affect YOUNG PEOPLE, at any age. A message overlooked by breast cancer organisations.

And so CoppaFeel! was born, the first charity of its kind. And by ’eck, did it land on Planet Earth with a bang. Having been started by Kris and her twin sister Maren just one month after Kris’s diagnosis, within mere weeks Kris was appearing on TV and in national press, raising heaps of cash for CoppaFeel!, and sharing her story in the hope of keeping other lasses and LADS from the same fate. And if you thought that breast cancer at 23 was surreal enough, try adding the Pride of Britain award and a Downing Street reception into the mix. From being a normal (okay, normal–ish) 23 year old, Kris’s life had suddenly become anything but. And yes, it’s been incredible. But it’s not the life she would have chosen.

After a secondary breast cancer diagnosis, Kris is not cancer free – and perhaps never will be. But she’s keeping as well as she can, being treated at the hospital each month with bone juice to keep her strong. And whenever she’s not in the presence of doctors, she’s pouring her heart, soul and a shitload of kick–ass into making a success of CoppaFeel!, not only refusing to let cancer wreck her party, but refusing to let it ruin yours too.

After all, we girls and boys are lucky enough to have been blessed with lovely hooters. So coppafeel, why don’t you – and let’s keep them that way.
