In her own words, Ellie says:-

I was honoured to be asked to be a Patron of the Carli Lansley Foundation. I didn’t hesitate to accept, for a number of reasons. This brilliant cause actively helps young people in the Southend area and the local community is very important to me. Helping to educate people about this hidden threat is vital, to try and avert similar tragedies in the future. Finally, I went to high school with Carli. I knew her. Seeing the impact of her tragic loss on friends and family, I wanted to do my part to ensure no other family suffers like this and to honour her memory.
