On New Year’s Day, I lost my son Liam at the tender age of 24 in a tragic road accident. At his funeral and via family and friends we will have a separate charity but so many Arsenal fans on Twitter have asked me so I am setting up a different page for Gunners.
Bob and Megs Wilson and The Willow Foundation do such excellent work with seriously ill young people. Bob has been so kind to me in supporting my books and Willow often work with Huntington's sufferers, another cause close to my family's hearts. Added to this of course are the strong links between Willow and Arsenal.
Consequently, if any Arsenal friends who know me personally and perhaps who met Liam would like to raise funds for this superb charity, in my lad’s memory then any donation will help. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
More information about Willow Foundation: Willow is the only national charity working with seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds to fulfil uplifting and unforgettable Special Days. Each day is a life-affirming experience that can lift spirits, reunify families and be a source of strength when it is needed most.
