In July 2015, Jessica Lawson aged 12 was one of 24 students and three staff from Wolfreton School in Willerby that were on a five day school trip to the Club Correze adventure centre near Meymac.
Whilst away on the school trip on 21st July 2015, it is believed that Jess became trapped under an overturned pontoon, that her and a group of children were jumping from whilst swimming. Jess was airlifted to the nearest hospital in Limoges but sadly passed away on the 22nd July 2015.
Jessica's parents had no support through this traumatic time. They very sadly struggled to cope with day to day life after losing their wonderful daughter.
The aim of their foundation is to help other families that face trauma and need immediate help. They aim to improve bereavement support services and ensure that no other families are left to cope alone.
More information on the foundation and what the progress and journey can be found on their Facebook page. Jess Lawson Memorial - Facebook.
