Hope for Tomorrow joined more than 2,000 people to celebrate the extraordinary life of Sir Stirling Moss, OBE, as part of a memorial service at Westminster Abbey. 

The cancer care charity that provides mobile cancer care units to NHS Trusts across the country was honoured to be chosen as the beneficiary of the event by Sir Stirling’s family.

As well as being a long-time friend of Hope for Tomorrow’s founder, Christine Mills, the racing icon, along with his wife, Lady Moss, were also the founding patrons of Hope for Tomorrow and helped to launch the world’s first mobile cancer care unit in 2007. Helen, as she’s called, was entirely funded by Hope for Tomorrow and 17 years later is still helping to deliver cancer services to more patients in more convenient locations in Gloucestershire. 

Sir Stirling’s illustrious career, saw him win an impressive 212 races. Fittingly, this is also a significant number for Hope for Tomorrow as it costs £212 a day to keep each mobile cancer care unit running.

Hope for Tomorrow’s Chief Executive, Tina Seymour and High Value Partnership Manager, Emma Bowles were honoured to represent the charity at the service of thanksgiving.

“The support that Sir Stirling and his family have shown us since the very beginning has been so warm and generous,” said Tina. “Myself and Emma were very proud to attend on behalf of Hope for Tomorrow and celebrate the life of a gentleman who was not only so well known and respected in the racing world, but someone that has also been an ardent supporter of ours.

“It was a fitting tribute and a chance for people to remember someone who was such a trailblazer. We’d like to extend our gratitude to Elliot, Sir Stirling’s son, and his whole family for not only inviting us, but choosing Hope for Tomorrow as the event’s beneficiary. It means so much to us and is testament to the lasting impact he will have as we continue to work to make cancer care services more accessible and convenient for everyone.”
