In Memory of Lara

As many of you know, my little sister Lara passed away suddenly on 23rd February 2009 after a blood clot travelled into her lungs. Although fit and healthy, her arm and leg swelled, Lara then dies within a matter of hours. We are therefore trying to help 'Lifeblood' raise money for research and to improve awareness of Thrombosis. Thromobosis is a widespread condition and a leading cause of death in the UK. It is known as a silent condition, as there can be little or no symptoms

Donating through Justgiving is quick, easy and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to sponsor Lifeblood: The Thrombosis Charity; which gets your money faster and, if you are a UK taxpayer, Justgiving makes sure 25% in Gift Aid, plus a 3% supplement, are added to your donation.

Thank you for your support.

**********Sponsored Walk**********

We held a sponsored walk 'In memory of Lara' on the 2nd August 2009. It was a walk along Canvey Island Seawall. Thank you everyone who participated and we raised just under £6000 on the day.
