THREE sisters were inspired to launch an online gifting company called Box of Hugs after their mother received treatment for brain tumours.

Anna Peters, Lucy Ambler and Sophie Morris were devastated when their mum Jane Peters, 71, collapsed eight years ago.

It emerged Mrs Peters, from Woodstock, had two tumours on her brain - one the size of an orange.

The sisters’ spent many hours together while their mum was in treatment and during this time they realised how difficult it was to send appropriate ‘thinking of you gifts’ when you can’t be by someone’s side.

Mrs Peters had the tumour removed and, in time, made a good recovery.

Oxford Mail:

Now, in partnership with The Brain Tumour Charity, the sisters have unveiled two new Jane’s Brain Box gifts to celebrate their mum’s recovery.

Inspired by their chats, the sisters’ quit their jobs to launch Box of Hugs - an online-gifting company that enables people to send thoughtful gifts in the post.

Ms Morris, 38, also from Woodstock, Oxford, said: “We’re completely in awe of our mum. She’s made an amazing recovery, despite being left with epilepsy and other side-effects.

“These problems have certainly not got in the way of her enjoying life.

Oxford Mail:

"She now runs every morning, walks twice a day, volunteers in a charity shop, and is always there to help neighbours, whether it’s painting walls or tackling overgrown wisteria!

“We always knew we wanted to do something to show our appreciation to the surgeon and medical staff that saved mum - it was just a matter of time.

“Box of Hugs was our first step. Mum gave us the push we needed to run a family business together.

“It’s meant our family is closer than ever before. Now we have this platform, we want to use it to raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity to thank everyone who helped our mum, and help more people affected by the illness.”

Oxford Mail:

There are two Jane’s Brain Box gifts to choose from and both are available from today. For every gift purchased Box of Hugs will donate £2 to The Brain Tumour Charity. Shoppers also have the option to add a £2 donation to their bespoke ‘create your own’ box.

There are two different versions of Jane’s Brain Boxes to suit different tastes.

The Gardeners Delight Hug in a Box costs £40.50 and includes Garden Birds water bottle, Garden Birds notebook, Julie Dodsworth Honey Bee Hand Cream, Bay and Rosemary St Eval Candle, Cotswold Fudge Company fudge, and 100 Hugs book.
