Founders of Jack Jeffreys Superhero Trust
Parents to Jack and Tom
We are so proud and honoured to announce that Lucy and Johnnie Jackson are now patrons for Jack Jeffreys Superhero Trust.
Lucy and Johnnie have been an amazing support to us all throughout all of Jack’s treatment and of the Trust.
It all started with Johnnie (then Captain for #CAFC) visiting Jack at The Royal Marsden right back at the beginning of his treatment in 2017, along with Karl Robinson (then manager). When Jack had his day at The Valley, both Lucy and Johnnie took the time to come and see Jack after the game and gave him gifts and of course there’s ‘that photo’ which we will treasure forever. Whilst we never said anything at the time, Lucy also came to visit Jack in his last couple of weeks up at St George’s. Apart from family, Lucy was one of the last people to see him before he passed
Since we started the Trust, they have both been incredibly supportive and we just can’t thank them enough! I think Jack would be very happy to have this wonderful couple on board and we look forward to what the future may bring.
