Dedicated to fighting the devastation of drugs
Welcome to the Luke and Marcus Trust from Susan Garner, Marilyn Shaw and Lesley Jakeman.
We’re the three heartbroken mums behind this small charity, set up in the wake of our beloved sons’ deaths from heroin overdoses.
Determined to help others cope with the sense of shame, guilt and dreadful loss we were left with, two of us (Luke and Marcus’ mums, Susan and Marilyn) launched the trust in May 2005.
Lesley was our first ‘client’ who turned to us after losing her son Matthew. Like Luke and Marcus, his drug addiction began by dabbling with cannabis. She’s since joined us in our work.
Between us, we offer unashamed sympathy, support and understanding whilst raising awareness and campaigning nationally on drugs related issues.
So please trust us when we say there’s no such thing as ‘only’ cannabis …
