Fran's family continue to support LPT

Theatre performance is latest event to raise funds

A theatre performance at a Hereford school is the latest event to raise money for The Little Princess Trust in memory of a very special teenager.

Thousands of pounds have already been gratefully received thanks to the family of Fran Lewis.

Fran, who died from a clot on her lung last year, was a huge supporter of The Little Princess Trust and donated her hair three times to help us make wigs for children and young people.

Phil Brace, from The Little Princess Trust, presents Fran's parents with a gift in recognition of their daughter's incredible support for our charity.

Since her sudden and tragic passing at the age of just 19 last June, more than £7,000 has been raised in her name for LPT.

The latest event to support our work will be the Rain or Shine Theatre Company’s production of The Importance of Being Earnest. It will be staged at Whitecross High School in Hereford on Friday, June 21.

Fran was a former student at Whitecross and the school has named LPT as its charity of the year.

Fran and her mum, Vee, watched the touring Rain or Shine theatre perform every year and Vee has many happy memories of the pair getting absolutely soaked while watching.

A plaque recognising the support received by Fran's friends and family is on display inside our headquarters at The Hannah Tarplee Building.

Thankfully, for some, there is a wet weather indoor plan for the Whitecross event should the heavens open.

Alison Biffen will also be there on the evening to man an LPT stand and let others know how the Lewis family’s support is helping our charity.

Tickets for the event are now on sale and can be purchased here.
