Who We Are and What We Do
The Sonia Marsh Trust is a small non-profit making fund that aims to raise money to assist good causes – primarily those dealing with Lupus or Lupus-related medical issues. It was founded by Sonia Marsh’s family in memory of Sonia.
Sonia Marsh passed away on 22nd September 2013 after suffering a stroke; she had Hughes’ Syndrome (Sticky Blood) – she was 50 when we lost her.
In 2021, Sonia’s husband, two sons and two daughters-in-law set up The Sonia Marsh Trust in her memory.
Sonia was born on 5th October 1962, and she was brought up in Downe, Kent. She spent much of her time as a child playing on her grandparents’ farm in Biggin Hill, and this is where she gained her love of farm animals (the pig within the Trust’s logo represents this…).
Sonia was at her happiest spending time with her family, and she was very proud when her first granddaughter was born in 2012; she would be very pleased to know that she now has three more grandchildren.
Sonia was a prolific – and very good photographer; her family are currently making plans to release some of these images to raise funds for this Trust. Her images are used throughout this website.
Sonia was a generous person who supported many good causes - the annual get-togethers in her garden for friends and family raised in excess of £3,000 over the years that was donated to various local charities.
