Sophie’s Sparkle Fund

The Sophie’s Sparkle Fund was set up by Alex and Kirsty Taylor in 2021 as a legacy for their daughter, Sophie. Through the Sophie’s Sparkle Package, the Fund offers up to £320 worth of positive experiences for the families of children diagnosed with cancer.

Sophie’s Sparkle Package

What can I apply for?

Families can apply for up to £320 to access the Sophie’s Sparkle Package, comprising products and services from three wonderful businesses (listed below), to benefit and provide positive experiences to the families of children diagnosed with cancer. To access an application form and to ask any questions you may have around the Fund and the general Sophie’s Sparkle Package experience, please contact Jodie Lancashire-Clark.

What does the process look like?

Families will be guided through the whole experience, from confirming safe receipt of an application form, to introducing them to their chosen supplier and checking in both with the family and supplier once the booking has taken place to ensure all parties have a positive experience or service.

How can I support the Sophie’s Sparkle Fund?

Sophie’s family and friends are continuing to fundraise to make sure that no family feels alone when battling childhood cancer, but they need continued support to help reach as many families in Norfolk as possible. If you are interested in finding out more about their work or how you can get involved, click below.

“In memory of Sophie, we have put together the Sophie’s Sparkle Package to provide families of childhood cancer the opportunity to access a range of different services and products that may support you in making your journey just that little bit easier.”
