As we move into winter, there’s still plenty to report from the Huw Thatcher Trust, and it seems to me that there will continue to be a lot to say about how so many people want to remember Huw and support brain injured people. In the last month, the total raised by the Trust has reached nearly £70,000 and will pass that total when the karate charity challenge has taken place on 16th December.
You may know that the Huw Thatcher Trust has now raised £67,000. That’s the result of thousands of contributions over the last 18 months involving many hundreds of people – friends of Huw and his family, relatives and even some people we haven’t met at all or hadn’t met until recently. Either way they are contributions by totally ‘sound’ people who care. So we want to update everybody on how their contributions are being spent – and how their generosity in remembering our beautiful teenage boy, is being used.
This time of year is important for lots of people as they start new years at school, college or uni – or get back to work after their summer hols. It is a time of year when there can be lots of changes and is therefore a time where there are lots of lovely memories of Huw as well as the sadness that he is not experiencing those new and exciting things that he should be. To start with here are two lovely photos from Huw as a 15 year old at school that 2 of his friends put on Facebook for us a year ago.
It should be time to do another update at the end of August, but it has been busy since 23rd July – and there is a lot to tell everyone. There have been lovely things to remember Huw and since July a further £2,000 added to the fundraising total which thanks to all of you, now stands at £64,000. Here’s a picture of Huw at ‘Little Wembley’ Holmfirth in the summer 2 years ago. Read more

An update from June: a month that has seen so much happening and lots of preparation for a busy July
There’s a heck of a lot going on regarding the Trust at the moment – planning for events in July and a lot has happened during June – positive things involving family and the community – as well as ongoing pride – and the inevitable regret over a year later.
