This year, instead of sponsoring the Lisa Wilson Golf Day, SES Autoparts will be sponsoring the New Forest Marathon and encouraging people to raise money for the charity through one of the several events taking place on the day. The event will take place on Sunday September 11th  at the New Forest Showground just outside Brockenhurst in Hampshire.

The New Forest Marathon is so much more than just a marathon; there is a half marathon, 10k, and 5k event, as well as a woodland walk and children’s fun run.

There is also the SES Corporate team challenge for teams of four — male, female or mixed teams can enter.

On top of this there is live music and many vendors selling goods, plus SES have a corporate area for light refreshments. Full details can be found at www.newforestmarathon.co.uk

SES are pleased to be able to offer a discount to friends of the charity;

For individuals invited by SES a 10% discount off the non affiliated entrants fee will be applied in the main competitions. You must enter SESRUN at the checkout stage.

For teams entering the SES corporate challenge an 18% discount will be applied. You must enter the code SESTEAMRUN at the checkout stage.

All entries can be made by visiting www.newforestmarathon.co.uk and following the sign up instructions. You will also be able to see more useful information about the event. The team entry needs the information from all four runners before it can be entered. Discounts will be applied at the checkout stage using the codes above.

Feel free to run for fun but we would encourage you to run on behalf of our nominated charity, The Lisa Wilson Scholarship Fund.

On November 21st Lisa’s Class of ’95 at Hounsdown School, Totton had a school re-union and  fundraiser to raise money for the charity. It was also an opportunity to recognise their school mates who had not lived to see the event – seven students have died since they left Hounsdown in 1995. The event was attended by over one hundred people at Totton and Eling Social Club, including the parents of some of the deceased youths. The Band Driftwood were the main turn and provided great music on the night, supported by Joey Brenig-Jones and Mike Vaughn. The event was presented by Lynne White–whose idea it was to hold the event–and Clive Wilson, who also spoke about the charity. The entry fees and raffle and DVD sales helped bring the money raised on the night to  £1220; a great effort and many thanks to all concerned.

In November, a large number of guests attended the 13th Lisa Wilson Scholarship Bursary Award Presentations at Southampton Solent University.
Four of the six students who received the awards were on hand to be presented with their cheques by Trish and Clive Wilson (Lisa’s parents). As well as six new students, a further ten students this year receive bursaries for their continued studies. This now brings the total of students to receive support through the charity to over 90.
During the same week, Clive Wilson presented Heather Katy Lewis with the Lisa Wilson Award for Outstanding Achievement. Heather graduated with a BA (First Class Hons) in Popular Music Journalism.

Saturday’s edition of the Daily Echo carried an article about the Class of ’95 Reunion taking place on Nov 21st.
