Do something crazy

Can’t find someone to sponsor or maybe there’s a certain challenge you’ve been meaning to complete.  Well that sounds likes the perfect excuse to do something a little crazy For Lucie.  Be it a 5k fun run, a full blow marathon or a mammoth bike ride it’s a great way to raise funds and awareness.  Thanks to the guys at Just Giving it’s as easy as falling into a bath of beans.  Just click below and you’ll be raising funds before you can say Lands End to John O’Groats.

Your donations make a difference.  We use your money to maximise benefit to others.  In assessing how we use your money we have one simple test.  Did it, or would it, make a difference to Jon and Trish.  Below are some examples of where your hard earned money goes:


How we use your donations

Sometimes it feels like we get taxed for everything we do and most things we don’t.  However on this occasion the Tax Man is your friend.  By virtue of being a UK Tax payer we get an additional 25% which makes that donation go that much further.  All you have to do is to remember to tell us.  For sponsorship check the option on the form, for texts reply to initial thank you, and for one of donations just drop us a declaration.  For those on a higher tax rate there’s a further opportunity to reclaim  more tax.  Don’t be shy.

Text us your donations

In 2010 there were an estimated 2.1 trillion texts sent.  That’s a mere 200,000 per second.  But just imagine one of those could be you sending us a fiver.  It really couldn’t be easier just text LUCY04 £5 to 70070.  If you want to give us more simply change amount and best of all of your donation comes to us.

Sponsor someone

We have some great support and even better supporters.  You can find a list of those people do events to raise funds For Lucie here.  By sponsoring them you supporting them supporting us.  For each sponsored event there will have been many hours on the road, in the gym, in the kitchen so you can be sure that you get your money’s worth.



Good ol’ internet

When Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1990 how could he have known that you’d have been using his invention to read this.  Let alone that you’d be clicking the link below to donate some funds to For Lucie.  There are options for different amounts and giving on a regular basis.

We work closely with the Child Bereavement Team at Nottingham Children’s Hospital.  The team’s made up of two great individuals Jackie Browne and Alison Rushton.  The work they do makes a real difference to those families suffering the loss of a child or baby.  How do we know?  We know because we benefited from their help, support and advice after the loss of Lucie.



Put simply Jackie and Alison are stars.  They’re the team of two who support families grieving the loss of a baby or child.  Whilst no one can take the pain of loosing a loved one away through their work they help to create some good memories of a difficult time.


One area they try and help is by the creation of keep sakes, for example taking foot and hand prints of loved ones for parents like this one of Lucie’s.
