Weʼre raising £500 to raise awareness and funding for Childhood Brain Tumour Research in memory of Lucas Williams, age 6, a very brave and much loved boy.

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.
Just over a year ago, some dear friends Andy and Jo tragically lost their beautiful six year old boy, Lucas, to a brain tumour. Since then, Andy and Jo have devoted themselves to help raise awareness of this terrible illness and to raise funds for childhood brain tumour research, in a hope that other children and their parents would not have to go through the same devastating heartbreak.
It is a testament to their strength and courage and their love and devotion to Lucas, that Lucas’ Legacy is now a registered charity. In just a year, with support from family, friends and the generosity of the local community, Andy and Jo have raised over £94,000 for charities, including £76,000 for research into childhood brain tumour research.
Lucas' Legacy facebook page is full of inspiring stories with the "LoveNeverEnds" by line a fitting tribute to a wonderful boy and his parents. Please visit their page here: https://www.facebook.com/LucasLegacy6/
On 16 October, I am taking part, with a number of friends, in the famous Cat and Fiddle Cycle ride to raise funds for Lucas’ Legacy. It is a challenging 55 mile cycle ride, which features one of the steepest rides in the UK to the Cat and Fiddle Pub in the Peak District.
If you would like to support this extremely worthy cause, please make a donation to my crowdfunding page or contact me to add your name to my sponsorship form.

HI Everyone, thank you so much for your kind donations to this very worthy cause. I'm pleased to say that I completed the Cat and Fiddle cycle ride today. It was a tough challenge and the weather wasn't kind but absolutely worth it to do something with a lot of other friends for Lucas' Legacy and for Andy, Jo and Lucas Williams. Great to see Andy spurring us all on at one of highest points and to see him here at the finish. Inspirational family. LoveNeverEnds x
