I have met and spoken with Sarah and her husband Christopher on several occasions and I have been struck by how they are coping by working tirelessly to help others. Their charity, Elizabeth's Legacy of Hope, named after Sarah’s mother, supports vulnerable amputees across the world. They have helped provide new limbs for 100 amputee children in Sierra Leone and helped numerous others by establishing a Limb Centre in Tanzania.
The Hope family is working with us at TfL in developing new and fresh techniques to ensure bus drivers continually receive good training about safe driving. Whilst serious accidents are quite rare, we will continue to work towards eliminating them altogether and we are delighted Sarah and Christopher are helping us do so.
Sarah and her sister Victoria are running in the London Marathon in April in support of Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope. We are all supporting them to raise money at this, the world’s largest fundraising event.
If you enjoy this blog and would like to do something to support me in what I am doing, please find a moment to support them too.
