Welcome to the Rob Stephenson Trust

The Trust has been set up by Sam, the brother of Rob Stephenson, who was sadly taken from us whilst enjoying a night out in York with friends.

Rob had so much fun being part of local sports teams that Sam wanted to put something back so other young people could also enjoy these opportunities. We were fortunate enough to have the time and money so that Rob and he could participate fully in the local sports teams. Not all people are that fortunate and we hope the Trust will enable some more young people to be able to participate and enjoy the friendship and camaraderie that sport brings. Rob was never a super star but he was one of those players that all clubs and teams need a 100% commitment and effort player.

The fund will also be available to support those individuals closer to home, with an initial plan to provide netting for Thornton Dale Cricket Club where Rob spent many happy hours in the summer. In addition, as Rob wanted to further his studies abroad, other students can apply for funding to help with books etc. through Newcastle University.

No matter where you are in the world, if you find someone that could do with a leg up to allow them to enjoy sport/education please get in touch.

Swede Shear 2019 @ Coultas Farm
Jun 1 @ 7:00 pm – 11:45 pm
Swede Shear 2019 @ Coultas Farm

At 7pm on the 1st June at Coultas Farm, Great Habton we are hosting the Swede Shear.  A speed shear and party in honour of the Robert ‘Swede’ Stephenson Trust by kind permission of the Bulmer family.  The event will consist of a shearing competition, comprising of an open and a young farmers class and finish with a party, music provided by ‘DJ Jarmuz’. Food and drink will also be available.

We are organising this event as we knew Swede from our school, rugby and university days. It has been a brain child of ours for some time as we wanted to raise money in honour of our close friend. Finding a different way to raise money was the challenge as many other friends have already undertaken a wide variety of challenges in Rob’s memory. However, nobody has yet organised a shearing event so we thought it was perfect! A great chance to get together and have some fun, whilst also spreading the good name of the trust.

‘Laugh. Live. Learn. Play.’

Entry price is a donation on the door. Shearing entries and/or enquiries about sponsorship to Neil Adams on 07890103461 or Robin Wilkinson on 07770845361

Emily Borton 75 Mile Walk
Sep 7 all-day
Emily Borton 75 Mile Walk

In September I will be taking on the challenge of completing 75 miles of the North Cornish coast path in a long weekend.

The North coast of Cornwall is stunning and I have been so lucky to grow up with it on my doorstep, the coast path is a fantastic place to walk but it also very hilly and parts of it provide some challenging terrain. I will be starting in Port Quin and finishing in St. Ives.

I am raising money for two charities that are very important to me and that do fantastic work – The Eve Appeal and The Rob Stephenson Trust. If you would like to donate and help support the brilliant things that these charities do then you can do so here.

Thank you!

Emily 🙂

Malton v Agrics 2016

A brilliant day thanks to everyone for turning up and particularly those who gave up their time to help, truly fantastic. Over £7,000 was raised which is an unbelievable effort. The Agric’s sneaked a win over Malton and took the country road back to Flares. Those left behind reached for the skies and have promised to fulfil their dreams.  So proud of you all.  Patrick Stephenson
