Luke's Legacy

Donation protected
Luke Williams was diagnosed with cancer of the mouth on his 28th Birthday in June 2013 and after undergoing major surgery along with intensive chemotherapy and radiotherapy, it was hoped the worst was behind him.

Unfortunately this was not the case with secondary cancer being identified in his lungs a year later. Luke was immediately put onto another very intense chemotherapy treatment which made him extremely ill. After further consultation with his specialist it was agreed that Luke should be able to enjoy a certain quality of life rather than endure the pain and grief the treatment would inevitably cause him and his loved ones for what could be just an extra few months.

Sadly Luke lost his battle to cancer on 9th October 2014 but not before seeing out his remaining months in his own unique style. With help from his family and friends, Luke was able to create and fulfil a very action packed Bucket List; this included such things as Hot Air Ballooning, backpacking across Europe, visits to his beloved Liverpool FC, being Best Man at a friend’s wedding and most importantly of all marrying his one and only true love – Linda.

Alongside all these amazing events, Luke led a team of his closest friends and family on a charity drive that surpassed all expectations when the idea was first conceived – managing to raise over £26,000 for the Pilgrims Hospice and Cancer Research UK. With the help of the Thanet Community (and beyond) events were held during the summer including Football Tournaments, cake sales, head shavings and the hugely successful Williams Weekender.

Two Years on from finding out about Luke’s terminal illness, his team are back, forming a Charitable Foundation from which they can promote and provide a platform for more fundraising events to support the Pilgrim’s Hospice. 

LUKE’S LEGACY in 2016 continues to support the Pilgrim Hospice and this year Caring 4 Conor.

With many ideas in the pipeline and the return of the Williams Weekender 2016, we hope to do all we can to raise money for the Hospice where Luke was so brilliantly looked after and all whilst keeping the memory of LUKE WILLIAMS alive.
