Our story


Our son Julian died suddenly in September 2007, aged just 33, as a result of a rare throat virus. As well as us, he left behind a wife and a two-year old daughter. Julian is sadly missed by all who knew him.

During his short life he was a wholehearted sports enthusiast who took great joy in playing and supporting a wide range of sports. He had also taken part in the London Marathon to raise funds for a children’s leukaemia charity. His evident wish to help others less fortunate is the baton we now carry on his behalf. We founded Kids in Sport to keep alive the memory of Julian’s big bright smile and his love of sport. We know he would have been enthusiastic about enabling disadvantaged children to participate in regular sporting activities.

On behalf of all the children we help, we thank you most sincerely for your support.

The kindest of regards,
Roger and Pam Budd
