    Story

    In memory of Chris Bevington, Briton killed in Swedish terrorist attack

    On April 7th 2017, our beloved friend, Chris Bevington was tragically taken from us in the terrorist attack in Stockholm, Sweden.

    Chris would be overwhelmed by the outpouring of love we have seen in the UK, Sweden and across the world for him and the other victims of this horrendous attack.

    People are asking how they might be able to donate, or show their love and support, so a few of his closest friends have set up this page.

    We are raising money to provide support for his young family and to create a legacy that is as meaningful as his life was.

    Chris was passionate about everything: his family, his friends and his music.

    Music was his lifeblood and led him to meet the girl who became the love of his life and the mother of his children. As his lasting legacy, we want to find a way to bring his passion for music to people who would not otherwise experience its life-shaping benefits.

    Although no amount of money will bring Chris back it will help support his family now he's gone and be the foundation of a positive legacy.

    Thank you.

    About the fundraiser:

    James Hunt and I were Chris’s Best Men at his wedding. I am godfather to one of his sons, James and his wife are godparents to the other. This page has been created by Chris’s closest friends to raise money for his family and start a registered charity to further a cause, or causes, close to Chris's heart. James and I will decide how to distribute any money raised between his family and the registered charity. We will post updates here, as the vision for the charity continues to crystallise and about all financial distributions made.

      Thank you everyone. Amazing action. Amazing words. Amazing love. We have been overwhelmed by your support and have decided to close Chris's fund now. If you would still like to contribute please get in touch via Just Giving or email. A few of us are seeing Chris's wife and boys this week and will be sharing all your messages. Your kind donations will be used to support the family moving forward and be the beginnings of a lasting legacy that will create some light from the darkness of this situation. More updates soon. Thanks again ❤ ❤

      "16 days ago, we set up this page in memory of our lovely friend. The original target was £50,000. We went over that. It was raised to £75,000. We went over that again. The new target was £100,000 - which we have just reached. It has been an incredible response to an incredible person and will provide support to Chris's family, as well as starting a legacy to honour him and help others in the future. A huge thank you to everyone who has shared posts and donated. You all rock. xx" From a friend summing up how we all feel. Jez, James & Friends

      Chris's family are beyond moved by the generosity displayed. THANK YOU all once again. As I said before, we were uncomfortable picking any target amount for this fund. In reality, our target is limitless, like the love being shown for our great friend. The fundraising period is 30 days so it's already clear to see we'll able to create an amazing future for Chris's boys & leave a legacy he'd be very proud of. Jez, James & Friends.

      ANOTHER BIG THANKS. We have just raised £50,000 in 4 days. Your support is phenomenal. Chris would not believe this & all his friends & family are truly grateful. We are going to leave the page open because people are still asking to help & the bigger the show of love, the more amazing the future. When you set up these pages you are asked to pick a target. We didn't think that was something we wanted to do. We certainly didn't have any idea what it should be. We'd be very happy to know that we were way off. Jez, James & Friends X
