A memorial service to celebrate Hilary Lister’s life will be held in the chapel of Jesus College Oxford at 2.00pm on Thursday the 2nd of May.
Hilary’s family would like to express their gratitude for all of the tributes left on https://hilary-lister.muchloved.com. They have been a huge comfort to all those who were close to her.
The Trustees of Hilary’s Dream Trust would also like to thank all those who have generously made a donation. We would like to reassure everyone that we are as committed as ever to continuing Hilary’s dream of making sailing accessible to people with a disability and have a number of projects lined up for the year ahead.
Hilary’s Dream Trust was established to help adults who are disabled or financially disadvantaged to fulfil their sailing dreams. We can do this either by acting as a source of information, or by helping with financing of a project.
As a disabled child Hilary found that obtaining funding for activity was relatively straightforward. However, when she reached 18, many sources of funding dried up. Hilary was extremely fortunate to find sponsors in Andrew Pindar and UKSA who made it possible for her to sail the Channel. She wanted to make sure that other disabled and disadvantaged adults would have somewhere to turn for help and Hilary’s Dream Trust was formed.
We can help individuals by acting as a source of information or by helping with financial support of a project.
All we ask in return, if appropriate, is that you to help raise money and awareness for the trust so that others can be helped.
