Charity fundraising to cease after 20 years

After 20 years of fund raising in memory of their daughter Lisa Wilson the family have decided to close down the charity. Now both aged over 70 Clive and Trish have passed the existing funds onto Solent University to carry on issuing bursaries in Lisa’s memory. Having raised over £300,000 and granted over 100 bursaries they feel they have created a lasting Legacy to Lisa which has dramatically changed both their lives and lives of many others. The University recognised Clive and Trish by making them Fellows of the University and in 2022 Lisa was granted an honorary posthumous award of Master of Business Administration on her 40th birthday in recognition of the work carried in the local community out in her name.

Clive and Trish receive their Fellowship award from Theo Paphitis and Graham Baldwin Chancellor and Pro Vice Chancellor at Solent University.

Clive and Trish will continue to support other local charities like Wessex Heartbeat and George Dillon ‘Only a dream away’ CIC. Most recently, three generations of the Wilson family–Clive, Scott and Aimee–recently carried out a freefall parachute jump raising over £1000 in memory of George Dillon who tragically died in a road traffic accident last year near Romsey.
