Merryn's Trust

In December 2009 Merryn Thomas, then 18, suffered a severe spinal injury that left her permanantly paralysed. The discretionary trust was set up in her name to help raise funds for specialist equipment and for generally improving her welfare. As a result of the effort and generosity of many people and organisations Merryn's return to education and mainstream life was made much easier and enabled her to graduate from Reading University with a degree in French and Italian which entailed living abroad for a year of her course. More recently she has been employed full time by the spinal injury charity, The BackUp Trust. Working in London she is living life to the full and as a consequence she feels that active fundraising for Merryn's Trust would not currently be appropriate. Should this situation change then this will be announced through the website and other media. However, if individuals or organisations are still interested in supporting the trust then please contact the Trustees for further information.
