Hilary awarded an OBE!

We are delighted to announce that Action Against Cancer’s Founder and Chairwoman Hilary Craft has been awarded an OBE in the 2019 New Year’s Honours List. Hilary has been an inspiration to many while she has battled with various types of cancer since 1998, and achieved so much in charitable fundraising for research into this terrible disease to try and help others.

Hilary formed Action Against Cancer in 2011, which fundraises to support research to help cancer patients throughout the UK, and indeed the world. Since that time, more than £10 million has been raised at the charity for life-saving research. Hilary’s company Regency Factors plc has supported the charity from the outset to keep costs low, providing key pro bono support for accounting, auditing and admin.

Hilary inspires others with her passion, tenacity and dedication to help others, and has consistently given a huge amount of her time and energy to help cancer patients and establish a very effective charity that is funding pioneering research to save lives.
