Trustees Tim and Cheryl of the Michael Lewis Foundation were invited to Barr Beacon School on July 6th to receive a generous donation of £4,380.12. The funds were raised through the incredible fundraising efforts of the school’s pupils and staff.
As a foundation that seeks to raise awareness and support for Type 1 Diabetes, the Michael Lewis Foundation was touched and amazed by the efforts of the school’s community. Barr Beacon School holds a special place in Michael’s life, and it is heartwarming to see the school continue to support his legacy in such a meaningful way.
Dame Brennan, Head Teacher of Barr Beacon School, expressed her delight in supporting the Michael Lewis Foundation, stating that “the foundation is named after a past student who were an excellent ambassador for Barr Beacon and a delightful young man.” She recounted Michael’s visit to the school shortly before his passing, where he inspired and encouraged fellow students to pursue higher education. “He loved life, and we all loved him,” she added. “Our pupils had raised money for charity, and this is a wonderful charity to support.”
The Michael Lewis Foundation would like to extend its gratitude to everyone at Barr Beacon School for their incredible generosity and support. The donation will go towards the foundation’s ongoing efforts to raise awareness and support for Type 1 Diabetes and its impact on individuals and families.
The foundation’s mission is to promote a healthy and active lifestyle while raising funds for research towards finding a cure. The Barr Beacon School donation is a testament to the foundation’s dedication and the impact it has on the community. It is through the support of individuals, schools, and organizations like Barr Beacon that the foundation can continue to make a difference in the lives of those living with Type 1 Diabetes.
We invite everyone to join us in our efforts to support the foundation’s cause. Whether through volunteering, fundraising, or simply spreading awareness, every contribution can make a difference. Let us all #LIVELIKEMIKE and work towards a brighter future.
