A star is named after Lisa

Lisa’s uncle Andy and his family recently named a star after Lisa.
The Lisa Alexandra Wilson Star is registered in the intergalactic starbase number ISD 0067510 and registered in star location M50.  It is situated in the constellation  of Monoceros.

This is very appropriate as the charity logo is a shooting star.

Rowing boat launched in Lisa’s memory

On Friday 22nd October a £9000 rowing boat was launched into the river Itchen at Coalporters Rowing Club in Southampton in memory of Lisa. The boat was named ‘Lisa The Daddy’ after Lisa’s e-mail address and website. The boat, which will be used all over the country in University competitions, was launched on behalf of the Southampton Institute rowing club. Lisa was a student at the Institute and graduated there with a 2-1 in Business Management. The Dean of the Institute Roger Brown attended the ceremony along with the Mayor of Southampton who said a few words about Lisa and the Charity and offered his support to the family. Tricia and Clive Wilson also attended with Lisa’s brothers Scott and Ross and Scott’s wife Kelly and Ross’s partner Donna. Several other dignitaries also attended the ceremony along with members of the rowing club. A ladies four from the institute crewed the boat on its maiden voyage. Special thanks must be given to Gus Mckechnie for his help in making this happen.


Memorial paver laid at St. Mary’s Stadium

A memorial paving stone has been laid at the home of Southampton Football Club in Lisa’s memory.  Lisa was a big Saints fan and season ticket holder, she regularly attended games with Mark Rigler, Steve Curtis and her Dad Clive.  Sadly, Steve died of a heart attack and a memorial paver has been laid next to Lisa’s in his memory as well.  This was felt to be a fitting memory that they would both have appreciated.  The pavers can be found near the entrance to the ground.

Memorial tree planted on 1st anniversary

The family planted a memorial tree in Bolderwood in the New Forest in Hampshire on the first anniversary of Lisa’s tragic accident. The tree, an English Oak, should live for 100-200 years. Next to the tree is a memorial bench overlooking the deer hide at Bolderwood. Another tree will be planted nearby shortly in memory of Lisa’s nan who passed away in February. Friends are invited to visit the tree at Bolderwood where the walks are open to the public at all times.
