Where does the Lucy Ellis Foundation funds get spent and Why fundraise for our Lucy's Charity?
1. Sending out brochures of Lucys story ("Anyone at anytime") to households. Currently sent to all households in Newport and Cardiff, but looking to further this with your fundraising. This adds value for those that are non internet driven or simply have not heard Lucys story.
2. Facebook and Google Adwords advertising to extend the reach of Lucys story to those have NOT already read and understand Lucys Story (not posting/reposting to existing liking/following FB members).
3. Enables us to spend money to make money, like our Cardiff Half Platinum package (£7.5k spend). I.e. if all 100 people (that comes with the package) raise £250 (Pledge) we raise an additional £18k of funds to further our mission to share Lucys story of her SEPSIS path/death further.
4. People connect with local charities and to those that have a personal "want" to make a difference. They exist to connect with local families to share the love and empathy of the "WHY" and not "Boil the Ocean".
5. I am Neil, I am the wholeheartedly husband of Catherine and very proud father of Sophie and Lucy. I am a struggling father with depression and PTSD and getting much help, mostly from people like "YOU" that listen.

#muchlove Damian and family. Truly special how many parallels we have xxIn May 2018, Lucy Ellis passed away after a sudden and short battle with Sepsis. Lucy was 16 years old and like Maddy, was a beautiful, fit and healthy young woman. Lucy's family live on the other side of the globe to us in Wales, United Kingdom, and like us have started a Foundation in their daughter's name to help raise awareness and fight Sepsis - The Lucy Ellis Foundation. Sepsis has no borders and does not discriminate.
To Catherine, Sophie and Neil, today we remember Lucy Ellis 2001 - 2018 #MuchLove

so happy to be a part of a special day and such an amazing send off for such an incredible person and an inspiration to many, i can’t believe where all this time has gone and my thoughts go out to the family in this time of heartache. i can’t find the words to describe how you must be feeling but i’m sure you’ll be there for each other and you’re surrounded by people who shall also be there for you when you need it the most xx
I have followed your story since my daughter Sophia participated in your gymnastics festival at Sophia Gardens last July. All I can say is that I have so much admiration for you, I’m not sure I could have gone on with so much courage! I will (& Sophia from Cotswold gymnastics) will forever remember Lucy despite never knowing her personally. Sending you love at this incredibly difficult timexxx
As Cath and I will not have any more words over the next week or so, we will be sharing memories and words of people that loved Lucy dearly. Photos from the last year, special notes from the balloon release and speeches from the funeral xx. #muchlove

Big shout out to all that are running tomorrows London marathon for HEARTFELT reasons!!
A special mention to Rhian Mannings from "2 wish upon a star" that not only enabled us to have special memories, where we have a box of hand prints of Lucy but hair and 2 toy elephants that Sophie has one in her bedroom today and the other is buried with our baby girl Lucy.
Without these special people there cannot be special moments to sooth emotional pain. Believe me Sophie will treasure that elephant for the rest of her life. You are special. x
Rhian, you are a life warrior and deserve respect! You are very special to us and everybody you have helped!!
Good luck tomorrow, I’m sure Lucy will be running right next to you and we (Cath, Sophie and I) will be with you in every way!
