Game of Thrones star Lena Headey has backed a campaign to raise money in memory of Isaac Nash, who was tragically swept out to sea last August.

Isaac, 12, from Highburton, who was on a family holiday in Anglesey, was playing with his younger brother Xander in the sea when a rip tide carried them away.

Their father Adam and grandfather Paul heroically raced into the water to rescue the boys.  Xander was saved by Adam but Paul could not hold on to Isaac.

Following the tragedy, the family set up the Isaac Nash Trust, which been working hard to raise £100,000 to pay for a skate park in their home town of Highburton. They also want to raise £10,000 for the RNLI who led the search for Isaac, whose body has never been found.

Lena, who is from Shelley, posted a link to the Isaac Nash Trust’s fundraising page.

She said: “Hello... I ask that you go here and read the story. Please give if you can x”

 

An inquest into Isaac's death yesterday recorded a verdict of death by misadventure and heard how Isaac's grandfather Paul battled in vain to save his grandson.

And dad Adam told the coroner in Anglesey how he swam out “about 150 to 200 metres” to try and rescue his sons but thought Xander was the one who needed his help.
