Morning all. This week’s nomination comes from our lovely member Dan who was touched by the death of a lollipop lady in Bristol.
Bex Ashmead was killed in a hit and run and there has been a groundswell of support in her local community to care for this wonderful lady’s four children in the aftermath of this tragedy.
Their just giving page is here;
Beccy had been a school crossing patrol officer at Saint Paul’s Catholic Primary School since April 2018.
Maxine Sewell, Headteacher at the school, Maxine Sewell, said:
“The school community is shocked and saddened to hear of this tragic incident. "Rebecca was very well liked and respected by staff and pupils alike and will be greatly missed. "She touched the hearts of so many with her enthusiasm and zest for life. Our thoughts are with her family and loved ones.”
To get the money best where it can be used immediately Dan is taking it directly to the family where we hope it can bring a degree of financial support to allow this young family a chance to greave.
Lots of love
