Welcome to the website of Remembering Rebecca

Remembering Rebecca is a local charity in memory of Rebecca Sands who passed away, aged 21 months, in August 2010 from the rare brain condition Lissencephaly which means smooth brain.

The charity Remembering Rebecca aims to raise awareness of Lissencephaly and offer financial assistance and support for children, from birth to 16 years, with Lissencephaly and other neurological conditions.

The cost of specialist equipment is very expensive- a small hand held toy could be £100 and specialist bikes are over £1000 which to some families is unaffordable. As a charity we aim to help these families through equipment grants and fundraising events.

As you can see from the pictures of some of the families we have helped, the equipment really does make a difference.
