Weʼre raising £3,000 to help start a memorial fund for Sue. Sue wanted to start a foundation within Lytham to provide community support for people with cancer

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Sue was a constant source of inspiration and strength to everyone. She never gave up on anything and her positivity, determination, energy and desire to help others will never leave anyone that knew her. Over the years she helped many people in a variety of ways, and during her illness this desire to help others turned towards setting up a foundation in her local area for people also dealing with her terrible disease.

Sue was always optimistic, and wanted the best for her own life and for those of her friends and family. Whilst living in Grimsby, she found a local support network that had a huge positive impact on her acceptance of her condition, and more importantly, how best to fight it and have some control over the situation. She really wanted to provide this kind of well-being structure for people in the Lytham area, and this is the foundation we intend to carry on setting up.

The foundation will provide an opportunity for people to connect and make their own community. People going through the same experiences are often the best for offering each other time, support and advice. Along with bringing together these connections, monthly meetings would be organised with an experienced skilled person speaking at each one, covering everything from nutrition, mindfulness and meditation, best sources of relevant information and family support ideas.

These initial donations will go towards setting up the foundation and towards funding the first few monthly sessions. Sue was a fighter and we know she would want us to carry on fighting for her in her memory.

Many thanks

    Hello LauraI am a friend of Sheila Farrell and although I did’nt know your mum I do know that she helped many people. Sheila suggested giving to this cause instead of buying her a birthday gift.

    Sue would move mountains for her students and friends. She has had a lasting impact on so many people, including me. Missing a great friend.
