Motion text

That this House congratulates LoveOliver on reaching the magnificent milestone of raising £1 million in their first 10 years as a registered charity and in time for September’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month; thanks Jennifer and Andy Gill for their hard work and dedication in making positive change out of one of the most difficult experiences a parent can face; recognises the vital role played by the many volunteers over the years who have played a part in donating, fundraising or supporting events and in opening and running their new charity shop in the Kingdom Centre, Glenrothes; notes some of the important projects that are able to happen because of the money raised including providing parents and families with practical support during cancer treatment, allowing part-funding for 2 four year PhD studentships at Newcastle University and not least raising awareness of childhood cancer; wishes LoveOliver all the best in raising their next £1 million; and finally remembers Oliver, whose tragic and untimely death brought about such a positive response which has gone on to benefit the lives of so many children and their families who are going through the hardships caused by childhood cancer.
