Our story

By Charlie’s mum, Heather.

When Charlie died David, Georgia and I were shocked and devastated. Completely unexpectedly our lives had been changed for ever and we had a gaping hole where Charlie used to be.

The Charlie Froud Foundation started from a need to say thank you to the people who searched tirelessly for, and discovered the plane. They then had the awful task of dealing both with the human tragedy they found, and the removal of the plane from the mountain.

Our friendship with The Glen of Imaal Mountain rescue volunteers began!

Over the years since that fateful day, the Charlie Froud Foundation has grown to be a registered charity that supports a variety of good causes and has brought many people together through events and challenges.

Many of Charlie’s friends are involved to this day and take a leading role in some of the adventures to raise funds.
