As Steven’s family and close friends we want to build a legacy to the person he was. His innate ability to bring out the best in everyone he met and everything he did is mirrored in his mantra to “Be Better”.
When Steven was tragically killed in Miami on 28th May 2018, he made the ultimate gift of life, as a registered organ donor, by immediately saving two people’s lives with his kidneys.
The Foundation’s objective is to promote and advance activities that Steven was involved in, passionate about or of great interest to him.
Steven was adamant about organ donation from the age of 10 after watching a TV programme with his mother. He was a registered donor in the UK, and when he moved to California in 2013 he immediately registered there.
We want to promote the saving of lives through organ donation by raising awareness and making grants available for research in U.K. and U.S.A.
Steven was passionate about science through both his work and his personal thirst for knowledge.
We want to support the advancement of scientific education by making grants and awards to students in full-time education, and to those in educational research establishments in the U.K. and U.S.A.
Steven’s family and friends are acutely aware that dealing with a major trauma thousands of miles from home produces unique problems. Support with even the simplest of tasks makes a huge difference, and dealing with the aftermath needs ongoing support.
We aim to provide support to U.K. based families of murder victims, wherever in the world the murder takes place, by providing advice, through donations to charities, and providing payments for items, services and facilities.
Steven was devoted to his dog “Charlie” who came from a rescue centre.
We aim to promote domestic animal welfare through donations to animal care charities and shelters by making grants available in the U.K. and U.S.A.
Steven was a football “fanatic”. He and two friends were the founding members of Kilburn Wednesday F.C. in 2007, in North London where Steven lived for a number of years before moving to the U.S.A. in 2013.
He was also a keen rugby player in his teens with Preston Grasshoppers.
We want to promote amateur sport by providing support and facilities for playing football and rugby.
