  • Hi I am Steph, mum of 1 (soon to be 2), Police Officer and now also Proud Owner of FREDS. CIC.

Why did I start FREDS.

Every year 4,500 families receive the devasting news that their Child has Cancer.

Having watched my mum battle Cancer for a number of years, I recognise not only the impact that Cancer has on individuals dealing with the difficult side effect of hair loss but also the financial implications.

Statistics show that a family with a child or young person diagnosed with Cancer is, on average, £540 per month worse off due to travelling costs, increased heating bills and loss of earnings.

When did I start FREDS.

My journey started 4 years ago after a risk reducing double mastectomy.  During my recovery I thought a lot about my mum, who had sadly lost her fight against Cancer, and all the people we met during our times in hospital.  

My mum was the kindest person you could ever have met, always helping others and never without a smile.

I decided then that I wanted to do something in her memory, finding a different way of helping people battling cancer by bringing smiles.


Falling pregnant with my son 3 months laters, it would be some time before I revisited this dream.

Fast forward nearly 3 years and with my sons 2nd Birthday approaching I was packing for a short break away when I had a lightbulb moment.  Having failed to find him a hat that didn't bare a cartoon character I had settled on a plain black one and when his camouflage tracksuit fell on top of it I had an idea.

I combined my love of fashion and shopping with my goal and formed FREDS. CIC, an apparel brand dedicated to gifting hats to every child and young person fighting Cancer.

Where will I deliver FREDS. 

FREDS. mission is to brighten the day of children and young people with Cancer by personally delivering hats through events held at hospitals around the Country.  I will enlist the help of my extended family in the Police to provide smiles and support during difficult times.

FREDS. goal is to gift a hat to every child and young person.
