After a nut allergy left her severely brain injured, The Amy May Trust helps Amy through the provision of medical and financial support after the restaurant responsible left her severely brain injured with no compensation. The Trust also aids others through the education and awareness on the seriousness of nut allergies.

The Amy May Trust is a Legal Protective Trust created to support the continual rehabilitation and necessary medical needs of Amy May Shead, a 30 year old woman who, in 2014, suffered a catastrophic allergic reaction to a nut after consuming a single bite of food whilst in a restaurant, after being reassured it contained no nut products.


While helping Amy, we’re on a mission to help educate the wider community on the seriousness of nut allergies. Here’s the three aims of The Trust.


We raise money

To provide a public-spirited platform for fundraising, allowing us to provide multidisciplinary therapy for Amy in an attempt to continue to improve her comfort, enjoyment and quality of life.



We help and support Amy

Through the donations to The Trust, we help and support Amy through the long continual path of rehabilitation and care. As a family run effort, every penny donated to The Trust goes directly towards helping this special young woman


We raise awareness

Amy's tragic incident has changed so many lives in unimaginable ways. Whilst doing our best to provide for Amy, we also hope that by raising awareness we may prevent this happening to another person. We aim to educate and raise understanding of the seriousness of nut allergies and the potential consequence of severe anaphylactic shock.
