Remembering Dee

Fundraising for Destination Florida Children's Charity
In memory of Dee Bretnall
We help children with medical conditions to go on amazing holidays to Florida


Though you may already be aware, our mother, Dee, passed away on the 13th January 2021 after a short but tough battle against a particularly aggressive and metastasised form of breast cancer, called Phyllodes Sarcoma.

In memory of our mum we would like to raise money for Destination Florida to fulfil her wish of giving disadvantaged children the chance to travel and experience the world. Travelling was a lifelong passion of our mum's and is something she always encouraged others to do whenever possible. 

Mum visited Florida several times in her late-teens, and she often talked with excitement of the experiences and fond memories she had of there. It was these experiences she wished to share once more with us, but unfortunately the opportunity never arose. As such we thought it would be fitting that, in her memory, others would get the chance to visit the place she was so fond of and create their own cherished memories.

With thanks, 

Cameron, Ashleigh, and Fraser.
