FOJO Festival of Music 5, 26th May 2019

The 5th FOJO Festival of Music took place on Sunday 26th May 2019 at The Blue Note Bar and The Troubadour, Jersey.

Once again a fantastic day of music and friends was had by all. This event wouldn’t happen without the dedication and hard work of Shane Horgan who spends so many hours organising over 30 bands and time slots, equipment, etc to make sure the day runs smoothly. Thank you to Anoushka for all your support and for allowing Shane time out of the DIY! 

Thanks also to Marcus and Carmel Butel from Youth Arts Jersey who ran the Blue Note stage for almost 12 hours solid.  To Island Music for the loan of equipment to the Troubadour which was very much appreciated.

To Tomaz Tura who manages both venues and the bar staff who also worked 12 hours straight too. They also gave a donation of £1,000 to the buckets – amazing – thank you so much!

Fantastic work was done Holly, Elly and Lennon Horgan who all gave up their time to collect donations and Shane and Anoushka’s family and friends who gave up their time to help on the doors at both venues.

Finally, and most importantly, to all the musicians who gave up their time for free, expected nothing, turned up played great sets and want to return in 2020.

Musicians truly are a community of wonderful, talented people who have all in some way been affected by cancer whether its family, colleagues or friends and they will always do their utmost to support the FOJO Festival each year.

FOJO Event - 26th April 2019

On the 26th April we held an event at the Royal Yacht Hotel, 'FOJO - Our Journey', to thank everyone who has raised money for us and to let people know how their money is being spent.

The event was a great success, we received lots of positive feedback and would like to again thank everyone for coming along and thank those who generously gave even more donations on the night.

A big shout out to Shane Horgan for his fantastic presentation, boundless energy and humour on the night.

An amazing challenge!


Special thanks goes out to Jean McLaughlin who set out to do 80 challenges in her 80th year - she smashed this and has now done 105 challenges, including aeroplane wing walking and a parachute jump!

Jean’s motivation was to raise monies in memory of her dear daughter and her husband. Jean has now raised nearly £10,000 to be split between her 5 chosen charities and FOJO are truly honoured to benefit from her outstanding efforts.

Being Mindful with new Calm apps for patients

We’re delighted that the Calm app has been kindly donated from Intertrust. The app will be available on all our FOJO iPads, for patients to access during their cancer treatments, providing a calm distraction for anyone of our patients who may be needle-phobic or experiencing anxiety.

Intertrust are also organising some mindfulness classes to support staff dealing with cancer patients. It’s been recognised that our jobs can be quite stressful at times and taking time to take care of their mental health ensures we are at our best to support patients through their cancer journey.

New exercise referral scheme

FOJO has recently funded a 12-week exercise programme run by a level 4 personal trainer. This is available to patients with all types of cancer. Research shows that regular physical exercise can improve patient’s emotional wellbeing and reduce some of the side effects of chemotherapy treatment. The programme offers psychological support, nutritional advice and tools to manage stress and anxiety.

New cold caps

FOJO has recently funded the purchase of 6 new cold caps designed to prevent and help minimise hair loss caused by certain chemotherapy drugs. These new caps have been re-designed to help make them better at minimising hair loss, and patients have reported they’re far more comfortable to wear.

An Iron Man!

July 2018 - Anthony Tobin.jpg

Huge thanks to Anthony Tobin who completed an amazing Iron Man challenge in Spain raising just shy of £1,000 for FOJO. He completed the 70.3 mile race in 7 hours and 20 minutes after a gruelling 1.9 km swim. Then followed a 90km bike ride and a 21 km run in 27-degree heat!  What an amazing challenge!
