We are Sonia Willgress and Lisa Ellams, sisters who live in Bromley, Kent. Lisa is mum of three (Rosie, Kyra & Henry) and wife to David. Sonia is Mum of two (Ella & Luca) and wife to Andrew.
Luca is a Cystic Fibrosis Fighter. We are passionate about raising awareness and money for the much needed funds for the research for Cystic Fibrosis. We believe a way forward would be raising money through running Cystic Fibrosis charity shops.
Lisa has become a member of BNI Spitfires, a networking group who are helping and donating in all areas, including legal advice, business advice and much, much more. Through the magic of BNI we have 5 amazing trustees for the new charity name “Cystic Fibrosis Supporters UK”.
We are campaigning to raise money for the tenancy deposit for the landlord and legal fees required. Lisa’s vision is to see it expanding to a chain, across the UK. Lisa, as with many people associated with CF, is willing to help fund, donate and volunteer.
Lisa is proud to be a BNI member and is determined to make this charity a huge success for Cystic Fibrosis Supporters UK, her nephew, family, the local businesses supporting this and, of course, you. We are currently waiting for the official charity number to be received. It can take up to 8 weeks (mid April latest). In the meantime we are fundraising with lots of events throughout the year.
You Can Help
We are also looking for empty shops initially in the immediate area. We ask for you to please, if you can, give a small donation. If not, please share our page and let your friends know what we are doing. This simple request means you would be making a huge difference to the future of Cystic fibrosis.
Thank you for taking the time. And when we are open, please come and visit us!
