Alyce’s Wish was founded in 2005 by Mark and Robyn Blackley, along with Purple Soup Director Tim Marchinton in memory of their daughter Alyce who died at 16 from Cystic Fibrosis (CF).
Through the Alyce’s Wish program, Purple Soup delivers empowering adventure programs free of charge to young people living with Cystic Fibrosis.

The team at Purple Soup are proud to be trustees of the Alyce’s Wish program which aims to bring a sense of adventure to the lives of these very special people, who, like Alyce, battle with the gruelling hospital stays and difficulties of living with CF.

Purple Soup staff donate their time to the program. Alyce would have wanted it that way. The “Princess” – who loved all things pink – bullied Purple Soup Founder Tim Marchinton into designing adventure programs for CF patients….even if they involved towing an oxygen bottle around. Tim is proud to have known Alyce, and her inspiration and legacy lives on in this program.

Alyce’s Wish was established by Purple Soup to allow us to deliver individual programs for CF patients, their family and friends, who can not attend Purple Soup’s group adventure camps, due to cross-infection risks.

Through the initiative, our participants can take on canoeing, abseiling, swimming with dolphins, rock climbing, sky diving…. or anything else that challenges them and takes their fancy.

Apart from lots of laughter and fun, we guarantee that the participants will leave shouting “I Can Do It!
