The SFT has been informed and is proud to say that the winner of the Voice 2014, Jermain Jackman, was one of the students we sponsored at the Anna Fiorentini Theatre and Film School.
For several years the SFT has been funding a group of students at Anna’s school. Jemain was the recipient of our funding and has now gone onto great things.

A HUGE congratulations to Owen Griffith for running not one, but TWO Half Marathons in one month in support of the Stuart Feakins Trust (and raising over £1500 in the process). Owen completed the first leg of his journey in the Sheffield Half Marathon, before returning to Hackney to compete in the Hackney Half Marathon on 10 May.
Owen said, “Stuart was a dear friend who is deeply missed by us all, and the Trust continues the work that was so important to him. He was an inspirational man who achieved great things for the young people of Hackney.”
We’d like to thank him for his amazing efforts. Please keep supporting us and the good causes we sponsor, download our monthly standing order form, BE A PART, PLAY A PART IN THEIR FUTURE.
Nick Tyson, guitarist in the band Gentleman’s Dub Club and member of the same cycling club as Andy, is joining the boys on their epic ride. This is amazing news and the SFT is incredibly grateful to him.
Thanks to the efforts of Tracy Spallin & Jemma Hobbs they have raised over £1,000 in two separate raffle competitions with Learning Trust employees
Stuart Feakins Trustee Steve Herbert said “What a fantastic gesture by Tracy, Jemma and many of the colleagues within the Learning Trust to raise such a substantial amount of funds”. It is appreciated by all the Trustees and we will ensure that every last penny raised, goes to benefiting many young people and organisations to make a difference to those projects”
Over 200 people attended a lavish inaugural dinner for the Stuart Feakins Trust in central London on Friday 15 May. Stuart’s colleagues and friends (including the Trust football team) turned up for the fundraising event, which included a speech from Paralympic gold medallist Marc Woods, cabaret entertainment and an auction.
The night was a huge success and raised over £20,000. Guest Jonathan Jerreat described the event as ‘a truly fantastic evening. Stuart would’ve been exceptionally proud.’ Special thanks go to organiser Sarah Wright and the rest of the events team at Barclays.
