Fund reaches £87,500

The amount of money now raised on behalf of the charity has now exceeded £87,500.  Following the successful fundraiser at the De Vere, the first target of £100,000 came ever closer. £100,000 will mean 100 years of education in Lisa’s memory, becoming Lisa’s Legacy.
Lisa’s brother Ross has created a brilliant animated DVD of how the money has been raised – it was truly inspirational and helped to pull the coffer’s out of the guests’ pockets at the dinner in Southampton, fittingly called “Lisa’s Legacy”.
To date £20,000 has been given to students, and with an annual commitment of at least £12,000 the fund raising must continue. On November 16th five more students were awarded bursaries at the newly named Southampton Solent University.  Over thirty people attended the ceremony where Pro-vice chancellor John Latham spoke on behalf of the university and Clive Wilson addressed the guests.  At the end of the ceremony Tricia Wilson presented the cheques to the students.
