The George Coller Memorial Fund
Who we are
GEORGE (10 January 1993 - 3 April 1996)
The George Coller Memorial Fund is the only national children's asthma charity that works exclusively on behalf of children affected by Asthma.
The Fund was set up in 1999 by George’s mum in memory of George who tragically passed away to this debilitating condition when he was just 3½ years old.
That children affected by Asthma deserve high quality treatment, care and information from Asthma trained health care professionals.
Our aims are:
To prevent ANY child dying unnecessarily from Asthma related illness (every eight hours someone dies in the UK due to Asthma – 90% of these deaths are avoidable)
To provide adequate Asthma care, support, help & advice to parents and families,
To provide resources to any organisation dealing with children in their care who are affected by Asthma.
How we do this:
By placing George Coller Asthma nurses in hospitals and clinics,
Helping families in their homes,
Supporting schools and children’s organisations
Our current projects:
We now have an Asthma training programme, which is available FREE OF CHARGE to ALL schools and children’s organisations across the U.K.
We currently have five George Coller Asthma nurses working in Hospitals across the Midlands and our goal is to ensure every children’s hospital across the UK has this facility – funds allowing!
