Aidan Lamberth - Westfield Local Heroes 2020

Feeding families

Scarlett May Foundation
Generous. Driven. Visionary.

Aidan Lamberth delivers 1000 meals a month to families who are unable to leave the bedside of their critically ill children.

Sadly, he knows all too well the difficulty these parents face because he and wife, Renee, spent four months with their desperately ill baby daughter at the Queensland Children’s Hospital.

When their daughter passed away from a rare genetic disease, the couple decided to set up the Scarlett May Foundation to provide healthy, high-quality meals to parents in her honour.

Every month a team of volunteers prepares and packs the meals in a commercial kitchen for parents, grandparents and siblings and delivers them to four hospitals.

“Most volunteers are just everyday mums and dads who have realised they can make a significant difference to families who are doing it tough,” Aidan says.

The foundation also cofunds a bereavement coordinator at the Queensland Children’s Hospital to ensure families have ongoing support.

It also pays for fingerprint jewellery for parents whose child has a terminal diagnosis.

“We were blessed to have family and friends who supported us with meals, purchased our keepsakes and paid for counselling for us,” Aidan says.

“We saw firsthand that so many others didn’t receive the same support, so we wanted to fill the gap.”

Westfield Local Heroes are nominated and voted for by their communities, with the three top finalists per Westfield centre each awarded a $10,000 grant for their affiliated organisation. The Scarlett May Foundation will purchase a blast chiller to safely increase the number of meals provided.
