The charity was originally set up in memory of five-year-old Hannah Tarplee, who died as a result of cancer in June 2005 by her parents Simon and Wendy Tarplee and her headmaster Tim Lowe. Hairdressers Peter and Tracey Prosser became involved in advising the charity at an early stage. The charity now has an office at Hereford Cathedral Junior School and supports children throughout the country. As of 2006, it had helped over 1000 children.
