Thank You for visiting the Finlay Foundation website.
Finlay Joseph was our beautiful 6 year old son, a perfect little boy in every way and a fantastic big brother to Louis, aged just 3 years old when Finlay was killed.
At 9am on March 14th 2011, Finlay and I walked happily hand in hand along the small lane to Woodborough school. Finlay an I were just seconds away from reaching the school gate when the school bus driver suddenly moved the empty bus away from the school and accelerated into us, this was after he had had an altercation with a tractor driver who had scraped the side of the bus.
The bus driver claimed to have hit the wrong pedal.
Finlay's head injuries were so catastrophic that he died in the road right outside his school. I suffered extensive injuries but survived and after many weeks in hospital managed to return home to my family.
The bus driver pleaded guilty to death by dangerous driving and was sent to prison.
