Victoria Hall and Angus Hulme had both been unlucky in love.
They had almost given up on finding ‘the one’. Then one day, while walking through Hyde Park in London, their eyes met and they recognised each other from a brief ‘swipe right’ moment on a dating site.
Too shy to speak, they passed by in a ‘Sliding Doors’ moment.
But later, Victoria found the courage to contact Angus. They had their first date in Hyde Park, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Telling Victoria’s story
The couple, from London, married in a beautiful ceremony, surrounded by family and friends. But four weeks later, Victoria died, aged just 33.
In between their meeting in Hyde Park and their wedding in Chelsea, were months of love, pain and heartbreak that neither of them could have foreseen.
This week (Nov 1), Angus re-tells their story in a moving film for Channel 4, as part of Stand Up to Cancer, the joint fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and C4.
In an impassioned plea, he asks people to help fulfil one of her dying wishes – and Stand Up to Cancer.
Stand Up to Cancer is the joint fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4. It takes developments from the lab and accelerates them into new tests and treatments to help save more lives.
