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.
