Poppy loved sailing down the River Lea in the summertime. My colleagues held a sponsored walk to raise money to allow us to do nice things. They walked down the River Lea from Limehouse through The Olympic Park to nearly where we live.
Poppy said something very sad about ‘luck’, when a minor operation had to be cancelled when she reached the operating table because she was scared by a doctor not thinking straight and reading out the list of known risks in front of her. You couldn’t argue with her feelings about luck, but we were so lucky to have the love and fun of such a beautiful and very special girl.
