Why we need your help
It's 25 years since John died. He was working for the BBC's World Tonight when he was killed in Croatia on 9 August. He was aged 29.
This weekend marks the 25th anniversary of John's death. His death left a hole in the lives of his family and was felt in newsrooms across the world. Susie, his widow, set up a charity in his name, the John Schofield Trust, to support young journalists.
Today the John Schofield Trust through its mentoring schemes and masterclasses, continues to work to support hundreds of young and aspiring journalists from all backgrounds by helping them access and navigate the news industry.
Please support our #RememberingJohn fundraiser so we can continue to improve social mobility in newsrooms and help even more young journalists across the UK, reach their potential.
If you knew John or remember his death and share our vision to make newsrooms as diverse as the people they serve, please support our #RememberingJohn fundraiser.
THANK YOU!‘John was a quiet, courageous man of great integrity.... I think most people outside the news business take news for granted. They expect it to be there day by day but we should all remember that it’s the work of people like John, their dedication, that ensures we all enjoy that precious thing that’s the life blood of any democracy – freely available information.' - Lord Hall, BBC
