THE family of tragic bucket list teen Alice Pyne have unveiled her charity’s first caravan to the public.

Alice’s Escapes, the charity set up by the 17-year-old to give sick youngsters a holiday in the Lakes, bought its first caravan earlier this year.

The Winchester Willerby home is now sited at the Bardsea Leisure Park, near Ulverston, where the family has visited since Alice and her sister Milly, were little. It was officially unveiled to by Alice’s sister and parents, Vicky and Simon Pyne.

Mum Vicky Pyne said: “Alice loved it there.”

The teenager, of Rake Lane, Ulverston, battled Hodgkin’s Lymphoma from the age of 12.

She inspired thousands of people through her blog and ‘bucket list’ of dreams she wanted to realise before she died. One was to buy a caravan for the charity.

She died earlier this year, weeks before the caravan was delivered.
