Special holidays for children
with a life threatening illness

The Lynsey Ivison Trust is a charity established to provide holidays to families with children suffering from life-shortening illnesses. Established in 1990 after Lynsey Ivison died, the Trust was set up by her family and friends to help families from across the UK spend precious time with their children. The holidays we fund vary but include breaks at Centre Parcs and days out a beautiful beach hut at Frinton On Sea on the Essex Coast. We also involve health professionals from many different hospitals to provide complete peace of mind for families whilst they are away.

We are supported by some fantastic individuals and corporate donors who tirelessly raise funds to continue the Trust’s work. We believe that Lynsey’s short life should provide real inspiration to others families in a similar situation. The Trust is a truly positive legacy which enables others to enjoy precious moments with their child and family and provide lots of treasured memories.

A big thank you for supporting our work.
