Fiona Strong Memorial Fund

Fiona Strong was a strong willed, kind and generous young woman, who was diagnosed with an exceptionally rare form of cancer.

The Fiona Strong Memorial Fund (FSMF) has been set up in Fiona’s legacy, to champion her strength and determination and to provide vital support to those in need in Surrey.

The FSMF awards grants to local non-profit organisations who provide support to help disadvantaged young people and or give respite care to relatives through challenging times.

To meet these aims the FSMF has decided to support the following Surrey-based charities for the forthcoming three years (2022 – 2025).

  • The Surrey Young People’s Fund distributes essential funds to persons aged 16-25 who are experiencing disadvantage in order to gain access to training, education and employment. By supporting this fund, even the smallest donation can make a huge impact on the young person’s development and aspirations.
  • Cherry Trees is a charity providing exceptional home-from-home, specialist short-break respite visits for children and young adults aged 0-19 with a range of complex disabilities including learning, physical and sensory impairments.

If you would like to contribute to Fiona’s legacy then please see the Fund’s Enthuse page. This is a simple and secure online giving platform that allows you to make an immediate online payment.
