The Rowan Varey Memorial Fund came about in response to donations given by so many people who’d come into contact with Rowan, a girl diagnosed with leukaemia at the age of 3, during her life and who wanted to help sick or needy children in some way.

Initially money from the fund was mainly sent to children’s wards in the hospitals where Rowan had been a patient, however later donations were made to children’s organisations in Romania, Chernobyl and India.

We now support a long term project in Uganda, Africa where we have helped to build, and continue to support, a boarding school for deaf children, many also orphaned mainly by Aids or war.
