Elizabeth’s Legacy of Hope has been named after Elizabeth Panton, mother of the charity’s founders Sarah and Victoria. Elizabeth was kind and selfless, and worked tirelessly to help others who needed her. She was an inspiration to those who knew her, and a pillar of the community in Market Drayton, Shropshire, where she lived. Elizabeth helped regularly at the local church, and was a volunteer for the community’s Meals on Wheels service for three decades.
Most of all she was a loving mother of her twin daughters and two sons, and equally devoted Grandmother of four grandchildren.
Elizabeth was 65 years old on the day she died. Her loss was a shock to everyone, but setting up ELoH has helped to prove how, out of absolute tragedy, something positive must emerge. In Elizabeth’s name, we are working to create lasting improvements for the lives of some of the neediest children across the world.
