Our Foundation was created by a group of friends in memory of Billy Abernethy-Hope, a compassionate, fun and loving young man who sadly died at the age of Twenty. Billy's zest for life made him a popular lad, lovingly remembered by those he met but his natural ability to care for others was probably his most remarkable quality.
Through this Foundation, we hope to continue sharing Billy's love by supporting Charities who help those who don't have some of the basics we take for granted everyday.
Billy quizzed his family about the homeless ... why are they sleeping rough? why don't we give them money to help them? why is no one speaking to them? aren't they really cold and hungry?
So our mission is to financially support charities who share Billy's passion to improve the lives of the homeless. Through a variety of routes, we will receive money from those who want to help the homeless but don't necessarily know how. We will invite eligible charities to apply for grants which helps them support a very vulnerable part of our society.
Our amazing board of Trustees are passionate about launching and supporting a charity which strives to make a difference to the lives of the homeless.
You can find out more about our Trustees in the menu at the top of our home page. We are fortunate to have people from a variety of a different backgrounds and careers, who each bring specific expertise.
We meet regularly and welcome questions from anyone interested in our Foundation or our objectives.
