Rebecca Cannon passed away suddenly on the 31st July 2014 as a result of a bowel complication that was incredibly rare in a 22 year old. She lived in North Holmwood and attended Redlands and Ashcombe, before gaining a Maths degree at Nottingham University. Rebecca was working in London and training to be an accountant.
Rebecca will always be affectionately remembered as a loving and caring friend, daughter and sister, with a feisty personality and a passionate determination to change the world.
The Rebecca Cannon Vitality Fund aims to provide a lasting legacy to that determination, raising money in her memory offering a brighter future for the homeless and disadvantaged young people of Surrey.
The fund awards grants to individuals and non-profit organisations who provide support to overcome homelessness and help disadvantaged young people gain confidence and raise aspirations.
Thank you to our incredible fundraisers
Rebecca’s friends and family set a target of raising £24,000 by April 2016, what would have been Rebecca’s 24th birthday. Since then, following everyone’s unbelievable support, they have doubled that target and have now raised a massive £48,000. Congratulations and thank you to everyone for your amazing efforts.
