Read her story

Rob George was a talented sportsman. He excelled at golf, hockey and cricket. At the time of his last illness he had just broken into the Colchester & East Essex 1st XI and had been elected a full playing member of the MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club).

But, Rob’s sporting achievements – and his life – was cruelly cut short by acute myeloid leukaemia. Diagnosed in June 2011 and treated at Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge, Rob achieved full remission but two years after his initial diagnosis the leukaemia returned. Further chemotherapy followed and a stem cell transplant was planned but Rob died in December 2013.

Rob was brave and dignified, caring not for himself but for his family and friends. His wish was that a Foundation be set up in his memory to support young people who faced similar intolerable financial difficulties to those he had encountered. Rob also wanted the Foundation to provide financial support to those in the worlds of sport or the performing arts.
