We feel that it is a fitting year to end Lucy’s Days Out, with this being Lucy’s 18th year. If Lucy was still with us she would be embarking on her adult life!
The Trustees agree with me that this is the right time for my life to be centred around my boys, as they have lived in the shadow of Lucy’s cancer for the past 12 years.
The Cathedral Spire shining purple in recognition of Lucy’s legacy is an amazing honour and now part of Salisbury’s history.
We are all extremely proud of what we have achieved during our 6 years creating and developing Lucy’s Days Out.
- We have helped over 400 individual families and many more families have enjoyed our group trips.
- We have given educational & emotional support, as well as cheering children up during their hospital stays with fun workshops & seasonal chocolates!
To date we have raised over a staggering £400,000! We will be sending many more families out on their Lucy’s Days Out during the rest of 2016.
We are organising group trips with our main sponsors:
- Chessington World of Adventures - sponsored by Salisbury Glass.
- Santa at Marwell Wildlife Park - sponsored by Marks & Spencer Salisbury.
Funds remaining at the end of the year will be donated to Hannah’s Holiday Home Appeal. Families living with serious illness stay at Hannah’s Holiday homes to enjoy special short breaks. This is where Lucy asked me to set up her charity before she died.
Pam is going to name the holiday home at St Leonards “Lucy’s Lodge “ keeping Lucy’s legacy alive, helping more families under Hannah’s umbrella!
Our assets are being donated to CLEVAH, Body Lounge Foundation and Hannah’s Hliday Home Appeal.
Thank you to all of you for your support without which none of the above would have been possible!
