    Weʼve raised £300 to go towards Dylan's Legacy Fund

    Woolton Hill, Newbury
    Funded on Tuesday, 5th April 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    Dylan Rich died on 5th September 2021 following a sudden cardiac arrest while playing football. He was 17 years old.

    His family and friends were determined that his death should leave a lasting legacy, one that reflects Dylan’s passions. A legacy fund has been established and this is being used to support causes close to Dylan’s heart.

    The Grahams are some of Dylan's family (Aunt/Uncle/Cousins) and, along with hugely supportive neighbours and friends, are hosting the Harwood Rise Christmas Lights Fundraising event on 12th December 2021 (3.30pm - 6.00pm) - weather dependant! The lights will be on all over the Christmas period so if you don't make the event (which will have some large inflatables, games and refreshments) then please visit Harwood Rise lights at another time and make a donation if you are able.

    Dylan's parents and younger sister have written the following about the two purposes that Dylan's Legacy Fund will be used for, both reflecting Dylan’s interests and passions.

    1) To improve access to sport and physical activity for young people in the Nottinghamshire area, particularly where there are barriers to participation. We will be working with existing organisations including Dylan’s own football club to establish how we can enable more young people to take part and enjoy being active. We feel blessed to have been able to provide Dylan with everything he needed to take part in whatever sports he wished to try. We want his legacy to include increasing the opportunities for the many young people who are not as fortunate as he was.

    2) To support nature conservancy and sustainable employment for local people in Kenya. Dylan loved animals from an early age and was passionate about looking after our planet. We were fortunate to enjoy 2 1⁄2 weeks in Kenya in 2019 and experienced the wonders of the Massai Mara National Park. A number of nature conservancies are now being run by local communities, providing Kenyans with much needed education, training and employment, as well as protecting the amazing wildlife. We plan to work with one or more of these local organisations to fund and support their work.

    Please help us to do some amazing work that Dylan would have been so proud of so that we can see his legacy having a positive impact just as we know his life would have done had it not been cut so short.
