Live Your Life 2018



A few days before Margot died, I wrote this blog post: https://www.teammargot.com/margot-is-our-inspiration/

Reading it back, I note the following words in particular: “It’s abundantly clear that Margot loves life and she wants to live !”


Franca Knowles MBE


Margot, with Grandma Annette

On 7 November 2014, eleven days after Margot died, my friend Franca Knowles also passed away. Franca was a remarkable person who had a real zest for life, coining the phrase “Live Your Life” which became a creed for the company she helped grow, Beds and Bars. 

In her memory, her husband, Keith declared Franca’s birthday “Live Your Life Day”, a day when company employees could take the day off to celebrate life with their families or in support of a charity.

This is the fourth year that Beds and Bars have supported Team Margot Foundation and Live Your Life Day is set to encourage more people to join the worldwide stem cell registers, by engaging people in Belushi’s bars to take a short survey relating to how they feel about donation. Others in the hospitality industry, like Glendola Leisure are also supporting in their establishments. 

THANK YOU to everyone involved.

I look forward to sharing the results in due course. 

#LiveYourLife !

Together, saving lives
