It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share with you that Robin Radclyffe passed away unexpectedly in the early hours of Thursday 9th January at home in Dorking. Robin was the much loved partner of our Founder and CEO, Patricia Parker, and a valued member of the Kids for Kids team. Many of you will know Robin personally as a friend, or from attending our events over the past 19 years including our annual fishing day which was his inspiration and passion. We are deeply saddened to have to deliver this devastating news. Robin will be greatly missed.
The Kids for Kids family express our sincere condolences to Robin’s family and loved ones. For all those who would like to attend Robin’s Funeral Service, it will take place at 12:30pm on Tuesday 25th February at St Barnabas’ Church, Ranmore, Dorking, RH5 6SP. Afterwards we invite you to join us at St Mary’s Church Hall, Stoke D’Abernon to celebrate Robin’s life (directions will be provided at the Church). If you wish to share a memory of Robin or express condolences, please reach out to Patricia Parker and family members via firstname.lastname@example.org or post a message or photo on Facebook.
Robin cared deeply about Darfur and the children and families there. His personal contribution made a lasting difference to the lives of so many. He especially loved the way that Kids for Kids is providing water and helping to turn Darfur green again. Patricia has suggested that if you would like to contribute to a living memorial, we are collecting donations in his name to provide water and trees in Darfur. Patricia says she is hoping to have a party in the summer to celebrate all of Robin’s contribution to so many. “Robin would not want us to be sad. That would be far from his thoughts. There is no one I have ever known who was more positive about life than Robin. Let’s remember him as he would like us to.”
