Message from Penny Lancaster Stewart,
Lowe Trust Patron
Thank you for visiting the Lowe Syndrome Trust Garden of Hope. The Trust funds research into the rare, incurable and debilitating childhood disease, Lowe Syndrome, and over the last decade, although small, it has been the world’s lifeline for research into a desperately needed cure.
The syndrome affects the brain, eyes, kidneys, bones and muscles sadly leading to a short life expectancy. Symptoms of the disease seem endless...cataracts, glaucoma, seizures, epilepsy, arthritis, scoliosis, weak bones and muscles, rickets, kidney wasting. Some children are blind, some never walk or talk dependent on the severity of the disease.
Please help us find better treatments and perhaps a cure for this devastating disease by helping to support ongoing research into the Syndrome.
To find out more about Lowe Syndrome and research underway, funded by this small charity, please visit www.lowetrust.com.

What is the Garden of Hope?
The Garden of Hope is a campaign to raise funds to support research into Lowe Syndrome. You are invited to enter your chosen celebrity garden and write your personal message to him or her on a leaf! Over the coming months, through your donations, the trees will become covered in leaves. And we’d like to let you know where your money is going, so in a little while we’ll tell you which project the funds have been donated to and then you can track its success.
You can add a leaf to more than one tree, giving you the opportunity to be part of several research projects. And if, as an individual or corporate donor, you’d like to make a bigger contribution, you can have a larger presence on a page.
How do I add a leaf?
Click a photo to visit a celebrity tree in the Garden of Hope, where you’ll see how leafy their trees are. Then simply add a leaf to the tree of your choice and confirm it with a £5 donation.
You can also give your name, or remain anonymous, and, if you wish, a message of your choice to the celebrity. Names and messages will be displayed when you click on the tree leaves.
If you’d like to donate more, just add more leaves !
Sponsorships are also available.
