PURPOSE PASSION GRIT (PPG)

Goldster's new Tuesday event, Purpose Passion Grit (PPG), focuses on the missing ingredient - that urge inside every individual to make something of their own lives; to keep going in the face of adversity, disappointment or tragedy; to embrace good habits and do what's good for themselves and people around them.

TUESDAY 10th MAY 12:00 -13:00

Sarah Hope

On 25th April 2007, Sarah Hope’s life was changed forever. She was walking in London with her mother, Elizabeth Panton, and her baby daughter, Pollyanna, when a bus driver steered onto the pavement. Trapped between the bus and a wall, tragically Elizabeth was killed instantly. Sarah suffered life-changing injuries to her leg and Pollyanna lost her right leg below the knee. 

 

Elizabeth was always kind, giving and caring, renowned for looking after people within her local community. Taking her mother as their inspiration, Sarah and her twin sister Victoria, together with Sarah’s husband Christopher, set up, in 2011, a new charity: Elizabeth's Legacy of Hope (ELoH). It was founded to provide prosthetic legs for children in Sierra Leone, Liberia and India. Having experienced how very difficult it was to find the correct prosthetic leg for her own daughter, despite the privilege of the NHS, Sarah found the concept of millions of children in developing countries having no access to prosthetic care so very wrong.

 

After also looking into what little care is available for road-crash victims in this country, Sarah campaigned with Transport for London (TfL) to set up a much-needed helpline. The Sarah Hope Line is a new incident support line to help victims who have been hurt or bereaved on the London Transport network. 

 

Sarah also campaigned for the NHS to provide running blades to all child amputees, so they can do more than simply walk. She was successful and, in 2017, Sarah was made a Pride of Britain for this campaign. She was also awarded an MBE in the 2020 New Year Honours. Join Lucinda Hawksley as she talks to Sarah Hope on Tuesday 10th May at 12pm.
