The Rob George Foundation

Charity description

The Rob George Foundation logo
Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.The Rob George Foundation has been set up in loving memory of Rob George, who died aged 21 on 9th December 2013 following a long battle with leukaemia.

The Rob George Foundation has two distinct objectives. These are:

1) To provide practical and/or financial support to young people with life threatening or terminal illnesses.

2) To provide financial support to young people who demonstrate exceptional commitment and/or ability in the worlds of sport or the performing arts but may be held back by their financial situation from pursuing their goals.

Rob was studying geography and management at Loughborough University when he was diagnosed with leukaemia from which he was eventually to die.

Rob coped with the challenge of facing the end of his life as he did the leukaemia – with calmness
and bravery. Rob was a talented sportsman. He particularly excelled at cricket and golf.

Rob’s family has a strong interest in the performing arts, as well as in sport, and the objects of the Foundation are designed to mirror both these interests. Applications will be welcome from young people who demonstrate exceptional commitment and/or
ability in the worlds of sport or the performing arts but may be held back by their financial situation from pursuing their goals.

The Foundation also hopes to be able to assist other young people with life threatening or terminal illnesses who find themselves in similar difficulty to Rob, and applications for practical as
well as financial assistance will be considered.
