Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

Orlando will have been a friend to many of you but for those who didn't know him ORF aims to raise money to help talented people achieve all that their ambitions strive for.

Orlando lost his life in a tragic plane crash 2 years ago. He was in all ways a larger than life character who in his 26 years served in Afghanistan with the Royal Marines; became a British judo champion 12 months after taking the sport up; was part of the most successful under 16s Torquay Athletic rugby team Devon has ever seen and rowed (mostly naked - apparently to avoid chaffing...) across the Atlantic. You may have seen him in the ITV documentry series "Commando on the Front Line" and films "The Fifty Five Year Old Commando" and "Row Commando".

He inspired everybody he met and in setting up this charity, his Mum, Julia, hopes that his memory can inspire many more. 

ORF raises funds to give a chance to disadvantaged or deserving people (of all ages) to achieve something extraordinary, be it an extraordinary ambition for that person and their life circumstances or extraordinary in itself.  Those assisted will be empowered and enabled.  They will have an opportunity to develop personally and accomplish an achievement previously beyond their reach. 

All donations, great or small, would be much appreciated. 

Many thanks,

Ben
