The Sadie Bristow Foundation, founded in Sadie's memory, continues to drive and inspire. Our mission is centred around Sadie's love for sport and her challenges with allergies.

Our mission

Allergies – Raising Awareness

The Sadie Bristow Foundation aims to help children, families and adults cope with living with allergies and raise funds for a nurse in the South East of England to train to become an allergy specialist. Our eventual aim is to open a clinic and advice centre in the South East and build an education programme for children.

The Sadie Bristow Bursary

Applications open in March 2024 for a bursary that will award several families with the services and support of Dr Helen (GP and Allergy Specialist) as well as support from a dietician, dermatology/eczema nurse and a clinical psychologist. Each awarded family will start with a 1:1 with Dr Helen to assess the situation and give space for questions to be answered.

Sadie's smile, enthusiasm and passion for tennis made our training sessions so much fun. I'll never forget the words Sadie wrote to me once before a tournament - "Don't be afraid to be great, Jake".
