Matty’s last game raises over £1000

Matt Le Tissier donned his boots for the last time to play for Eastleigh against Winchester City in the Hampshire Chronicle Cup. Over 1000 turned up on a hot Sunday afternoon to see the great man play, although he didn’t score he rattled the post from a free kick with the keeper stranded and came close on another occasion. Twenty five percent of the gate money was donated to Lisa’s charity and along with a raffle and charity auction the fund benefited by to the tune of £1320. Before the game Matt was presented with a plaque by Lisa’s mum and dad for his outstanding services to football.

Lisa’s spirit lives on in Cardiff at the F.A. Cup final

Lisa as everyone knows was a great Saints fan and season ticket holder. Lisa’s mum Tricia wore a Saints shirt with Lisa’s name on the back at the cup final Saints v Arsenal. Lisa would have loved it, it was an emotional day and she would have been so proud of the valiant effort Saints made.

Abba Evening raises over £3000

This very special occasion to celebrate what would have been Lisa’s 24th birthday turned out to be a huge success. Over 150 people turned out mainly in fancy dress to party in the way Lisa loved to. The group ‘Abba Revival’ twice played ‘Dancing Queen’ and packed the floor with people dancing and crying at the same time. The raffle raised nearly five hundred pounds and with donations from people who couldn’t attend and ticket sales just over £3000 was raised for the Lisa Wilson Scholarship Fund.

For the evening, Lisa’s brother Ross created a photographic journal of Lisa’s Dream. The dvd is now available here

Tricia and I would like to thank everyone for their support. 

‘Lisa The Daddy’ rules the waves

At last year’s boat show we ordered a new boat that was launched on what would have been Lisa’s 24th birthday on 15th March 2003. The new boat, a 28foot long Cranchi, was named after Lisa. ‘Lisa The Daddy’ is berthed at Hythe and every minute spent on her helps keep us closer to Lisa.
