The Jessica Bethell Foundation
Jessica Bethell died of meningitis on 1st October 2012, her kindness will live on through this foundation.
31st May 1988 – 1st October 2012
October 1st, 2012 was the worst day of our lives. We left home around 9am, kissing Jessica goodbye, as she came in from riding out. She said “I’ve got a bad headache Mum.” Those were the last words she spoke. She had died by 6pm that evening.
Meningitis kills in four hours. We will never understand how a beautiful, healthy young person like our daughter could pass away so suddenly. We miss her more than words can say and always will.
In her memory, we have formed The Jessica Bethell Charitable Foundation as a lasting tribute to our beloved daughter and to raise money for worthy causes…
The Foundation will be administered simply, without great expense, and will be very personal to James and I, and the Trustees and friends who have worked so hard to get the ball rolling.
The Foundation officially launched at a Dinner held on Tuesday, 12th May 2015.
