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.

Forthcoming Events

Aug 12 all-day
Source 2 Sea @ River Spey Scotland

On the 12th of August, our group of 8 will be hiking and canoeing the entire length of the River Spey. Canoeing Scotland’s fastest flowing river, through stunning highland wilderness, down rolling rapids, with ospreys and otters – we are beyond excited.

Our journey will start at Luib Chonnal bothy, where we will spend the first night. From there, we will hike to Loch Spey and begin the first section of the river on foot. We will be accompanied by Clare Balding on our first day of hiking, for her Radio 4 program, Ramblings! After 2 days hiking, we will reach Lochain Uvie, where we will put in the canoes, and start our 135km paddle to the North Sea.

We are doing this challenge for a very special charity. The Rob Stephenson Trust was set up in memory of our friend, Rob, who had his life taken from him far too soon. His family set up this brilliant charity to donate sports equipment to developing countries across the world, allowing children everywhere to carry on Rob’s passion for sport. Kit has so far been sent out to Sri Lanka, Malawi, Mexico, and Kenya, to name a few.

We are sharing our journey in the hope of raising money for Rob’s charity, to support the fantastic work that this Trust does. It is such a brilliant cause, and one that is very close to our hearts.

We hope you enjoy following our journey.

Thank you, from Cam, Charlie, Chloe, George, Louisa, Pip, Sam, and Suz

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
