Children & parents of Tithe Barn School raising money to create a school garden in memory of Lucas Garrity
About the project
Lucas Garrity died, aged just 7 years old, after tragically being diagnosed with an aggressive and inoperable brainstem tumour less than a year before.
Since then I have been struck by the positive attitude and generosity of spirit of his family, who have raised huge amounts of money for the BrainsTrust, donated the Lucas' Smile award to the school, and are now working to create a beautiful garden at the school to support the schools "cheerful, confident, acheiver" ethos.
The project is to be funded by a cobination of activities including refreshment stalls and cake sales, local community social events and sporting fund-raisers - such as The Manchester Color Run!
