Angus and the Trust's origin


Kara and I lost our beautiful son Angus on Thursday September 7th 2006. Angus would have been two years old a month later.



We decided soon after he died to establish something permanent and fitting to ensure that other children benefit directly from Angus's life and from the fact that so many others shared our sense of loss. With the help of our friends we launched The Angus Lawson Memorial Trust.


The Trust now has over 30 partners globally with a focus on supporting organisations working with children who have specific needs where the impact of the funds allocated will be visible and direct.


Within the ALMT there are no administration costs. Every £1 donated will go directly to the causes we identify. In fact with matched giving and GiftAid there is a multiplier effect (see the donate page for details). All costs are absorbed by Kara and myself, and the Board of Trustees.


This website is to provide accountability to you - our sponsors. We are completely reliant on your help not just financially but also in terms of pointing us to worthy causes. 



"No man or woman stands so straight as when they stoop to help a child"
