Love of Lacey

Lacey Warburton, age 7, was a bright vibrant little girl, enjoying her summer holidays when she suddenly and inexplicably passed away. The trauma that her parents, brother and extended family and friends have experienced and are still experiencing is unimaginable.

The family are supported by each other and their friends which is a blessing.

Ray and Jodie have set up the charity ‘Love of Lacey’ to provide support to other families who find themselves in such dreadful circumstances. As Lacey was a pupil at St Peter’s we are committed to the memory of Lacey but also we are supporting her charity in a variety of ways.

Registered Charity Number 1183876 Love of Lacey – registered charity

This year we have so far raised £370.74 to support Lacey’s charity.

On Friday 19th July 2019 we had a whole school picnic, unfortunately it was raining so we had the picnic in school.  Spirits were far from dampened, children and staff had a lovely time together in the school hall.  After the picnic we held a butterfly release on the junior playground for the whole school to remember Lacey.  The children were very excited.  It took a short while for the butterflies to venture out of the box, but when they did it was at the pure delight of the children and Lacey’s family and friends who came to celebrate the release too.  Children and parents  have been sending in money all week for the butterfly release, to raise money for Lacey’s registered charity.  Total donated £233.59.

Year 6 Leavers production ‘The Lion King’ was performed on Tuesday 16th July 2019.  The show was fantastic and watched by many for the evening performance.  The door collection amounted to £137.15.

Thank you for your continued support.
