E.coli O157 & Haemolytic Uraemic Syndrome

Success in memory of Lucinda

12th December 2006

Jayne Klus-Roberts of Seaford, Sussex has been campaigning since the death of her daughter from E.coli O157 in 1997 to have better, safer storage for children's packed lunches at school.

Now the local school attended by Lucinda and her brother Meryck, Seaford Primary School, has installed refrigeration in all the classrooms.  Head teacher, Mr Reynard admitted that it is such an obvious thing to do and he was delighted to find that the costs were no higher than open shelving. 

Jayne was delighted, especially as the fridges were installed during the same week that Lucinda would have been 18 years of age.
