Alec’s Angels – Giving Back
Reflecting back over 2011, one of the most emotional memories for us is the sad loss of Alec Jarvis, whose fight of a brain tumour ended at only nine years old.
Six months later Alec’s family made the decision to set up a trust in his memory so that they could give back to the charities who helped them through Alec’s tough fight.
The trust was appropriately named ‘Alec’s Angels’ and his parents Sara and Brian chose three charities to support; The Lennox Children’s Cancer Fund, Clic Sargent and Helen & Douglas House.
Last year, Alec’s 16 year old cousin put the trust foward to the John Colet School in Aylesbury and asked them to raise funds through their annual ‘Help Week’. They raised lots of money and as a result, we’d like to say a huge thank you to Sara and Brian for presenting the Lennox with a cheque for £700 on behalf of Alec’s Angels. These finds were used to provide special grants for four families last Christmas.
The website set up for Alec’s Angels says: ” We want his love and laughter to be shared amongst the people who helped him most. It’s our time to give back!”
