Lizzie Dymock
It is with much sadness that we have to communicate the death of our much loved trustee Lizzie Dymock. She died on 7th June after battling breast cancer for the third time. Lizzie had been a trustee since the inception of Tuppenny Barn Education and worked tirelessly for the project. Without her passion, drive and enthusiasm we have no doubt that Tuppenny Barn would not be as it is today – a thriving community promoting sustainable living in all its forms.

Lizzie had many passions including food education for kids, growing organic fruit and vegetables, music and the arts all of which she helped promote at Tuppenny. More recently she helped with the plans to commence a Tuppenny horticulture therapy project for ex veterans suffering from PTSD.

Lizzie was an inspirational person and loved by us all. She touched many lives and leaves an incredible legacy. It was her wish that any donations in her memory be made to Tuppennybarn.

Our love and prayers are with Anthony, Amy, Charlie and Rufus.
