We Campaign for safer roads to Save the lives of our children


In Early 2021, we heard of the horrific story of Louis Thorold, who at just 5 months old was killed whilst being pushed in his pram by his mum Rachel. Louis’ dad Chris, who worked at the same company as Holly, has set up the foundation in Louis honour to campaign for safer roads, so that nobody has to go through what they have.

At the time of hearing this awful story, we had ourselves just discovered we were expecting our first baby together, making this story hit home even harder.

After following the updates on the case, the verdict was given, and a victim statement from Chris & Rachel, Louis’ parents was released. Holly couldn’t finish reading it, the details too upsetting, imagining how we would feel if it were our beautiful baby boy was just too much. Bobby, who for anyone who knows him is a very matter of fact person, was in tears as well. After this, we both instantly said we wanted to do something to try and raise as much money as we could to help this charity and raise awareness of their cause.

 If you can, please read the victim statement, to truly understand why the Louis Thorold Foundation deserves all the support we can possibly give, but please bear in mind that it is a very difficult read.

 Thank you for taking the time to read this, please donate whatever you can so we can help to reduce infant pedestrian deaths to zero.

The Louis Thorold Foundation is setup in loving memory of Louis Thorold who died on 22nd January 2021 at just 5 months old whilst his mother Rachael pushed his pram along a pavement. In Britain 40 children are killed as pedestrians on Britain's roads a number which we believe is too many.
