WELCOME TO ALEC’S ANGELS …..
Registered Charity Number 1146145
This site is dedicated to the memory of a very special little person. We want his love and laughter to be shared amongst the people who helped him most.
Who was Alec?
Alec Jarvis was an exceptional child. Like so many he had a natural zest for life but Alec also had an extraordinary wisdom that allowed him to see the world around him as few adults can.
In February 2010 Alec was diagnosed with an astrocytoma, which is a tumour in the brain stem. In spite enduring intense examinations and treatment such as MRI, CT & CAT scans, biopsies, six weeks of radiotherapy and six months of chemotherapy Alec always remained cheerful and more concerned about the other children that he came across with cancer than himself.
Alec’s Angels Aims
The selfless concern was so inspiring to those that met him, that following his death Alec’s father Brian set up Alec’s Angels to raise funds in support of other children and families going through the same agony of childhood cancer.
One of the aims as specifically requested by Alec was to make children suffering from cancer SMILE. The other is to support the families who, as Alec’s parents know too well, find some of the smaller things in life impossible to manage when dealing with childhood cancer.
To continue the Alec’s Angels quest we NEED YOUR HELP! We hope you can come join us at one of our events soon to help raise money for these awesome guys that gave so much; Helen & Douglas House, and CLIC Sargent. It’s our time to give back!

HADRIAN’S WALL CHALLENGE 2015
This was another fantastic challenge completed by amazing people which raised more valuable funds to continue the work of Alec’s Angels. Photos are being collated and money is being counted, after which a report will appear on these pages. There is already information on Facebook. At this stage, suffice it to say that walking almost 95 miles in 4 days through hilly border country requires a special kind of person. Well done to all of them.
THREE PEAKS CHALLENGE 2014
This challenge involved climbing Ben Nevis – Scotland, Scarfell Pike – Lake District and Snowdon – North Wales within 24 hours, including travelling and sleeping! It was an exhausting but exhilarating experience and raised a magnificent £5,000 plus which will be used to help so many families.
We were lucky enough to be awarded money from Lloyds Community Fund 2013 so thank you all so much for your VOTES!!
SMILE…. IT’S SHOWTIME!
IT’S A KNOCKOUT RETURNED TO WINSLOW FOR ANOTHER GREAT DAY
Once again, Alec’s Angels is indebted to all those who supported this event.
