My story

The Legacy Award

Following the recent untimely death of my pony, ‘Taff’s Little Legacy’, I am setting up an award to sponsor a child through a bereavement therapy course at Bodster Equine Therapy CIC on the Isle of Wight. Just £2000 would fund a child for a year using equine therapy and could make such a difference to that child.

As a child, I was bereaved twice – my brother died when I was 8 and my father when I was 14. I have first-hand experience of what it is like to be bereaved at an age when you are ill-equipped to deal with it, and at a time when your friends are children too, so they in turn don’t know how to deal with it or you either! And of course there was no bereavement counselling. This feels like the right way to remember Legacy as she too came into my life because of bereavement, following the death of my best friend, Taff, at the age of 40. Pip (Legacy’s mum) was Taff's pony and she gave her to me during her illness. So we continued the legacy by letting Pip have a foal ,who we aptly named Legacy! Taff left behind 3 wonderful children aged 13, 11 and 6 – more children bereaved in childhood. So I want some good to come from Legacy’s untimely death (aged 12), and it feels fitting therefore that Legacy provides a new ‘legacy’ by helping to raise the £2000 needed to fund a bereaved child at Bodster for a whole year.

So on 11th June, I dust off my trail trainers and undertake another 100k ultra marathon non-stop (aiming at around 25 hours) in the Lake District. Then on 24th July another 100k Coast 2 Coast across Devon. Not as fit as I was - Covid and moving house have rather got in the way - so it will hurt!! Every £1 makes a difference - donations do not have to be large but they WILL all count. Thank you so much in advance. Lucy xxxx
