Weʼve raised £5,150 to honour the life of Chris Edwards
- Guildford, United Kingdom
- Funded on Sunday, 27th May 2018
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Thank you for visiting this page in memory of Chris Edwards, beloved son, brother and friend to many.
Chris was a talented geologist who had a successful career in both academia and industry. A passionate cyclist who had raced both in the UK and abroad, he is remembered for his energy for life, his wit and an infectious personality by his family and his many friends.
Chris's mother Olive has set up this page for those wanting to make a donation in his memory.
Donations will go towards Karuna (a charity that works in India and Nepal to end caste-based discrimination and for which his sister Amy works) and a portion may be contributed towards a planned bursary for student geologists set up in Chris's name.
If you feel able to make a donation, you can help his family bring some small good from such a tragic loss. Thank you.

My mum and I would like to thank everyone who has given so generously in memory of Chris. We have well and truly exceeded our target and, including all the additional cash donations, we have now reached £5, 875. Thank you to those who were able to attend the funeral and for the kind messages of support. It was very comforting to hear your collective memories of Chris. It showed what a wide and diverse circle of friends he had. Thank you again for your overwhelming response and being so willing to give.

Hi Amy, I was so shocked to hear about Chris's passing. I was fortunate to have him work in my team in Norway and remember his excellent skills as a geologist, and his amazing sense of humour.
