Background

The charity was founded in memory of Robin Llyr Evans.

Robin was a young lad of 20 years old embarking on an adventure – 15 months travelling to tennis tournaments all over the world working for Hawk-Eye. Unfortunately, two months into his adventure in September 2015, it came to an abrupt end when Robin had an accident in a newly built stadium in Wuhan, China.

The family wanted to establish something special in his memory – something that would reflect the zest that Robin had for life and his unparalleled interest in sports and people.

In the end it was decided that a charity would be established to provide financial support to individuals from North West Wales who excel in any aspect of sports. Grants would be provided to these individuals to help them with the high costs involved with travelling and training.

In the Summer of 2018, “Robin Llyr Evans Memorial Trust” was established.
There are 5 trustees and one co-opted member. Three of the trustees are members of Robin’s family and the other two are officers who work with Sports in Gwynedd. The co-opted member is a family friend and has been very supportive of the charity.
