WILL YOU HOLD AMY’S HAND?
Hold Amy’s Hand was formed in January 2015 to raise money for much-loved journalist Amy Watts’ life-saving bowel cancer surgery. After a ten day international fundraising marathon, supported by celebs like Simon Cowell, Gary Linekar, Matt Goss, Barbara Windsor and publisher Richard Desmond, we reached our target of 100K.
Sadly Amy passed away on March 5th 2015, too weak for the surgery. In her memory, Hold Amy’s Hand continues to fundraise in support of Bowel Cancer UK, as a partner to their Never Too Young campaign. We also raise awareness of bowel cancer in young people.
