Lucy's Memorial

On 13th March 2021, the world lost a wonderful mum, beautiful wife, cherished daughter and incredible person.  Lucy Howell (née Stockwell) passed away suddenly during the birth of her second daughter.  The shock and pain of Lucy's death has been unimaginable.  Her heart-breaking loss is tempered only by the fact that newborn Pippa is a strong, healthy baby.

Lucy's family intends to raise money for a memorial in her name. Those donations will go towards an enhancement project at Winnall Moors nature reserve. Lucy was passionate about wildlife and the conservation of these natural areas, and this was one of Lucy's favourite places.  A picture of Lucy walking there with Rosie is shown above.  The project will benefit both wildlife and people, and will include a plaque in Lucy's memory.  The exact project will be decided between the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust (HIWWT) and Lucy's family in the near future.  Initial plans are to revamp the willow log circle in the woodland glade, and to fund improvements to the pond-dipping area and habitat for water voles. 

The target set is £3,000, and any donations beyond that amount will be used to invest in local nature projects, as agreed by the family.

An update on the selected projects will be sent to donors at the end of May.
