Our charity is nothing without the people who make up it's community. Collectively with our supporters, staff, patrons, trustees and advisory groups, CoppaFeel! has a voice far greater than our size. Meet the people who keep the boob world spinning.
CoppaFeel! was founded in 2009 by twin sisters Kris and Maren Hallenga – after Kris was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer at the age of 23. Since then we’ve grown from a determined duo based in Kris and Maren’s living room to a team of eighteen housed at Boob Towers in South London. This lot are obsessed with boobs, but for a very good reason.
