Lauren McLeish

In 1996, Lauren’s father was killed on operational service in Bosnia. Three months later, her mother committed suicide leaving Lauren parentless at the age of only eight months old.
Despite her tragic start to life, we’ve been able to provide Lauren and her grandmother with the financial support they’ve needed to give Lauren a brighter future.

Lauren is now 16 years old and is preparing to sit her A Levels next summer. She has been financially supported through The President’s Award Scheme since November 2007.
