@ Queen Elizabeth Hospital Blantyre Malawi

Alfie aged 9 years old whose grandfather died of BURKITT’S Lymphoma in January 2016 decided to raise money for Scott’s Charity and help the children with BURKITT’S in the Blantyre hospital in Malawi by having his hair cut the last day of the summer term. With the help of his grandma Pam he collected sponsors… invited the local newspapers and had his beautiful red locks cut!! He has collected over £500.00 so far.

A great achievement for such a young chap and his grandfather would be very proud of him… we are very proud of him.
We first met the Alford family at the London marathon 2016 when the wonderful Joni Bacon was running for Scott… and Pam had been in touch with the Foundation to talk about her loss and trying to understand the awful BURKITT’S cancer.
Alfie’s contribution means a great deal to us and for the memory of his grand father.

See the photos of before and after loss of locks…

Thank you everyone for another fantastic Scott Hampton weekend in his memory.

On December 11th 2012 at the Ovalhouse Theatre

JAMIE ZUBAIRI dedicated his performance of his one man show UNBROKEN LINE to the Scott Hampton Foundation.

All the proceeds from the evening's performance including the sale of Jamie's fine-art cards and original artworks went to Scott's Charity.
It was a magical evening created by Jamie's journey playing multiple roles about foreignness, culture and the search for identity using live painting, theatre and Balinese dance.

Jamie is an old LAMDA friend of Scott and this was a moving tribute to his friend no longer with us but forever remembered and loved.
Thank you so much Jamie... Scott would be very proud of you. xx

A wonderful gathering round the large table in the Banqueting Room of all of Scott's closest friends and extended family. A special annual date for all of us to be together. A great atmosphere of friendship and love. Thank you all for coming.

Kimberley with our beautiful new grandchild Cecilia and Theo, Olivia, Eliana and Raphael; Robbie, Patricia and Casper; Hugo, Ticci, Lucca and Ava; Dan and Ruth; Joni (Annabel and the twins Otis and Iris were there in spirit but had the flu); Steve, Lucy and Hermione; Nick, Carla and Rhys; Rowena and Fiona. Absent but also there in spirit: Paul B stuck in New York; Paul T, Tracey and Jasmine in Sydney; Ace and Gini away in India on their honeymoon; Lilikoi in Hawaii.

It is difficult to realise Scott has been away from us now for 5 years: he seems ever present and his fun and energy is part of our lives forever.

Thank you everyone at Westside for making this Fifth Annual Event such a success and a great weekend in memory of Scott.

We raised over £2,000 with your support.

Giving their generous time and enthusiasm, Alison and Chris organised
the Junior U12s and U14s Tournaments. We had the maximum turnout of
contestants - a very high standard of play and competitive spirit - all the Finals went to a Championship tie break!

Congratulations to all the players and winners:

FINALIST DYLAN WOOSEY (see photo gallery)

FINALIST IMAN GARSHONG (see photo gallery)

U14s Boys played on Sunday morning.
FINALIST SCOTT MOORE (see photo gallery)

We hope that they will all come back again next year. We were very
impressed with their professional attitude and it was such a pleasure
to watch youngsters enjoying their tennis.

Meanwhile, the barbeque and raffle sales team were in full action from
early Saturday morning - and without their help, time and dedication to
the Event - the day would not have happened.

Liza's great organization and cooking, Wendy's delicious array of wonderful cakes, Peng's cooking and her contributions of Nadia Petrova's outfits to the raffle, Jilly with Yanna at hand, and Maggie selling raffle tickets to everyone arriving along with the help of Crispian (Scott's friend). Thank you also to our granddaughters Olivia and Eliana for baking special cakes and helping to sell the goodies at the barbeque.

At 2 pm Saturday afternoon, Westside was a throng of 60 happy contestants, raring to go for the Open American Tournament with Elizabeth at the helm with the help of Mark, organizing the players in a continuous round of competitive fun play.

Thank you all for making it such an enjoyable, great afternoon. The day ended with the annual raffle and auction of some great prizes generously donated by YONNEX, SAINSBURY'S, HEADMASTERS, OLIVE GARDEN, Peng and Jenny. Mark was in full swing as the great auctioneer in the making!

Many thanks for all your support and making it such a fun day - and we were blessed with lovely sunshine. See you next year!
Wade and Stephanie

The Golf day in memory of Scott Hampton, on July 5th 2010 at Merristwood Golf Club, Surrey

There were 22 players, playing 27 holes of golf and, as well as including a donation in the fee for the day, we managed to raise additional funds thanks to the participants generously contributing to two raffles and an auction. As a result, £2,300 was raised for the Scott Hampton Foundation! Well done, everyone.
Thank you, Paul O'Sullivan and Rowen Pestana, who were the two biggest sponsors of the Event. Special thanks also to James Kane for organising the Golf Day, Tom Hobson and of course our son-in-law
Theo Kiakides.

Malawi Documentary Trip to Malawi "Surviving Burkitt's" Documentary June 18th to July 4th 2010
< Click on the image (left) to view the photo gallery

Wade and I flew to Malawi, Friday June 18th to join Alex Tweddle, director and producer of AngryMan Films and cameraman James Buck in Malawi where they had been doing some pre filming and setting up the schedule and meetings with the vital help of Fatima, our Malawian interpreter and fixer.

The focal point of the film was the children’s oncology ward in the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Blantyre, where the film followed children aged between 2 - 11 years old coming to the hospital very ill with suspected Burkitt’s - beginning with the diagnosis procedure through to their first chemotherapy treatment and their progress over our stay of two weeks.

We were very privileged to have Professor Elizabeth Molyneux, Head of Paediatrics, as our introduction to the ward and the children. Her dedication to the welfare of the children creates a bond and trust with the often frightened child and guardian. The care is carried out in cramped and very basic conditions - often children sharing beds and in need of repair. But the commitment and love given by the Sister, nurses and care workers make the best of the lack of amenities. Mothers/guardians stay with the child for the duration of the treatment, sleeping with them or outside in the yard - the village life is created within the compound. The follow up care especially with terminally ill children is done by the Palliative group - we followed Beatrice to a
village 4 hours away where her presence and counseling helped the family through
the tragic time.

To understand the many obstacles a family will encounter to get their sick child help, we visited distant rural villages where life is lived without any visible modern amenities in homemade mud huts. The village is ruled by the chiefs and medicine men who decide the outcome of what is best for the child. We met and talked with a Madam Chief and her advisors in a village near Blantyre. The medicine man we found was outside the government hospital in Lilongwe - ready to “cure” any ailment the hospital could not provide. Inside the Lilongwe hospital we interviewed Doctor Mwali - head of the District Hospitals, a charming man who gave us a clear view of how important it is to bring together information and resources.

Burkitt's Lymphoma is the No1 cancer in children in Malawi and large parts of Africa. This aggressive cancer visibly shows itself mainly in the face-the tumor appears behind the eyes, cheek or jaw and in other cases in the stomach - and grows overnight if not treated. We watched how one protocol of chemo reduced a tumor in days. Sadly, if the disease has taken hold, the results are not so good. That is why this documentary is so important to inform and help all sources to understand.

What we want to do is to set up a program to research Burkitt’s through the medical school in Queen Elizabeth Hospital that will ultimately help these young children now and hopefully even more in the future.

We were very proud to be allowed to be a part of this documentary and want to thank Professor Beverly Griffin for bringing us together with Alex Tweedle and James Buck.

The day ended with everyone gathered round beginning with Stephanie - Scott's mother - talking about Scott and the disease BURKITTS LYMPHOMA cancer and how the Charity is so important.

This was followed by the Raffle and auction for some amazing prizes very generously donated. Thank you to the contributors and recipients.

Thank you!!

Thank you to the raffle buyers.... we are thrilled BOB got the big one and is off to the Veterans Masters at the Albert Hall in December.

Supported throughout the day were the wonderful helpers of the barbeque - LIZA ROE the supreme organizer and cook assisted by Peng Newman and Wendy Dear with her home baked goodies, and Jilly Hardie for being there. Their time, help and support was invaluable.

The day was finally made special for us by having our family and friends with us - Kimberely, Theo, Olivia, Eliana and Rafi; Joni and Annabel; Stephen, Lucy and Hermione; Andy, Anneka and Crispian; Stephen, Andy and Crispian being tennis players as well - great to see!

The Edinburgh Marathon 25th May 2008 - Nick Cox

Nick Cox, a friend of Scott's, ran the Edinburgh Marathon for the Scott Hampton Foundation with his friend James, and also in memory of Nick's father, who died from cancer 23 years ago. Thank you so much, Nick for your great run and the generosity of all your friends for the Foundation!
Nick has written:

Hello Everyone,

Thanks very much for sponsoring me.

After a twinge in my right Achilles tendon from a warm up race the weekend before, I thought it might be all over for the marathon bid. But with resting through the week, a lot of anti-inflammatory gel and a very measured and gentle running approach, I managed to find the right rhythm and motivation and forgot about my heel after half an hour. Scott's Mum and Dad, Stephanie and Wade, tripped up to Edinburgh to cheer me on and James' family came up too, which was very valuable moral support.

I lost James at mile 5. I didn't stop, even when, at mile 13, I was overtaken by a gorilla in a tutu named Gertrude, who'd trailed me since mile 6. Along the seafront, past Leith at mile 16, I found a wind break in 6'4'' Hugh from St Albans. I stayed with Hugh for 8 miles, re-overtaking Gertrude at mile 18 and finding new energy resources at mile 24, said goodbye to Hugh, stepped up a gear and powered home to get a 4 hrs 15 mins finish.

Thanks to your help £1,247 goes to Scott's foundation. Nick

Kingston Breakfast run 1st April 2007 - Andy Petri

Andy Petri, a friend of Scott's ran this event for the Scott Hampton Foundation. Thank you so much Andy! Well done!
Andy has written:

I have to say it was a hugely emotional run and I am so pleased that I continued and thought of Scotty and of his Foundation for which the whole run was for, also many people were calling "Scott" (he was wearing a Scott T-shirt) and encouraging me on the final straight. I raised over £1200 and there is still money and extra sponsors coming in.

The Second Annual Scott Hampton Charity Tennis day
29th September 2007, Westside LTC, Wimbledon

The First U12's Junior Tournament was organised by Alison Taylor-played and enjoyed by a group of terrific boys and Lila Simpson, who won the Consolation Prize beating a lot of boys! The Final was fought with very good tennis between Inigo Slijepcevic and Felix Blom-who won at the end of the 2nd tie break. Roger Taylor presented the boys with their trophies.

In addition to the U12s, the Adult American Tournament had a great turnout with 52 players! Thanks to everyone who made the Tennis Day a great success, raising over £1500 for the Foundation!

Scott was there in spirit and his great passion and love for tennis was realised by all of you with your enthusiasm and the huge generosity of your time and money. His Charity for Burkitt's Cancer Research is such an important cause - a rare and aggressive disease of which very little is known in terms of a cure. It is hoped through our Charity and the support of leading medical professors and doctors, actively involved in this field of research, more lives can be saved in the future.

Stephanie and Wade Hampton
