The Caron Keating Foundation

The Caron Keating Foundation is a family run charity in Caron’s memory to support all types of cancer causes.

Daughter of TV and Radio presenter Gloria Hunniford, Caron was first diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 1997 when she was in her mid 30’s. At that time, she was a much loved TV personality, having presented programmes such as Blue Peter, This Morning, Top of the Pops and Entertainment Today.  Tragically, Caron lost her tenacious battle with cancer in 2004 and subsequently the family set up a fund in Caron’s name – The Caron Keating Foundation – which gives grants to all types of cancer charities.

The Caron Keating Foundation makes a considerable difference to many individuals and families affected and dealing with cancer, through assisting small but significant cancer charities throughout the UK, financing professional carers and support groups. The Foundation’s aim is to give a significant number of grants to small charities throughout Britain, as opposed to trying to raise money towards huge building projects or research which involves millions.
