I’m raising as much as I can to beat cancer

In memory of

Lola Thursby

Thanks for taking the time to visit my fundraising page.

Every year we have a mini launch of the year's fundraising due to the generosity of all of you. Usually we hold a raffle and have tea, coffee and cake at our last class of the year but 2020 is very different!

This year's Christmas classes will be online via ZOOM and the special Twelve Days of Christmas class will be available to anyone who wishes to donate.

The annual outdoor yoga event has been developed to embody everything about my Mum - her yoga practice (and kindness- the overriding principle of yoga), her love of baking and her love of her gardens. This year's event will be Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th September 2021 - PLEASE SAVE THE DATE.

When I was a child I accompanied my Mum to her yoga classes during school holidays, and in my 20s she encouraged me to start a regular yoga practice, which has supported me through chronic illness as well as regular life events that challenge us all.

It was 20 years later, while I was training to become a yoga teacher, my Mum was diagnosed with terminal cancer, hence the annual fundraiser and the naming of my business in her honour. Most friends knew my Mum as Aunty Lola or A. Lola for short; my Dad’s name is Alan and in Sanskrit ‘ALOLA' can be translated as ‘Tranquil’.

She had hoped to be live long enough to attend the first event but sadly that wasn't possible. The fundraising has been created in memory of my Mum who died too soon of Bile Duct cancer in 2017. Always in my heart.
