Who was Charlie Sumption?
We set up CSMF to commemorate and celebrate the brief life of Charlie Sumption.
Born on 14th March 1992, Charlie was always full of promise. A character full of fun, with a twinkle in his eye, Charlie was going to take on the world and make something of it. Never shy, he touched the lives of all those he came into contact with, with his unbounding enthusiasm.
Always ready with a joke, Charlie had a great love of any sport that had a bit of action attached to it, especially sailing, skiing and rugby. He particularly loved riding his horse T.J. which he eventually mastered without the aid of any riding lessons, as he refused to have any. That was so typical of Charlie and his 'can do' attitude.
Charlie tragically died of Sudden Death Syndrome on the 18th April 2006 at the tender age of 14, when his whole bright future lay in front of him.
It is appropriate therefore that this memorial fund should give other children the chance in life that he tragically was never destined to have himself.
