There are many many very generous and thoughtful people
and companies who have given either their time, money, expertise or
thoughts to help support our daughter. All of these things mean a lot to
us. We have been overwhelmed with the empathy and generosity we have
received. The little things people have done can mean lots to us as well as the major events and
we have tried to create a page where we can say thank you to everyone. Once again, Thank you very much if you
have helped in any way - it all makes a BIG difference to our daughters
life and as such we are very grateful indeed.
If you feel you could help in some way or have a fundraising idea, then please contact us

Whilst Olivia was ill
We would like to say thank you to the paramedics and medical staff who treated Olivia whilst she was ill, both in Carlisle and Newcastle. It was due to the paramedics administering penicillin quickly that our little girl is here today. The Hospital in Carlisle sometimes receives bad press but the service we got and still receive from them is second to none and they really seem to care about Olivia and what is best for her. i would like to name especially the following people: Paul Whitehead - consultant paediatrician - we don't see him much nowadays but he was head of the team who looked after Olivia when she was in Carlisle. The Limb Centre in Carlisle - Dr Roberts (consultant), Neil Wallace (prosthetic manager) and the rest of the staff who make Olivia's limbs and always have time for us and give us always a first class service. All of our friends and family including Caron - our next door neighbour, Auntie Tricia, Josh and Amber - Olivia's brother and sister, Billie Raymond, MP Joinery and our kind neighbours in the surrounding area who provided us with a safe play area for Olivia.
