Our Patron: Andy Townsend

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to The George Coller Memorial Fund Website. When I met Kim, her devoted team, family and friends in the summer of 2001, I was totally overwhelmed by their drive, dedication and enthusiasm. I have not forgotten the warmth, kindness, determination and pride that everyone felt that day.

It was an honour and a privilege when I was asked to be patron of the fantastic charity, which has risen from the sad and tragic loss of one beautiful three-year-old boy, George Michael Steven Coller, who lost his fight against the harsh symptoms of Asthma.

Being a parent myself I cannot imagine the devastation of losing a child, the void would be immense and unbearable.

Supporting the George Coller Memorial Fund can ensure that fewer parents experience that loss and that children from Britain and indeed around the world can be helped and saved from the traumas of the relentless conditions of Asthma.


Together we can continue to help eradicate the fears of Asthma and give young people with the illness a future that is bright – something that every young person deserves.

Fondest wishes
