The Fi Radford Memorial Fund
Fi Radford was an inspiration to many people and is fondly remembered as a wife, mother, friend and environmental campaigner. If you met Fi, you would have probably remembered her for the many qualities that she possessed - her kind nature, her passion for campaigning, her smile, her wicked sense of humour along with an unmistakable laugh. It was with great sadness that Fi passed away in November 2020 after a short illness with cancer.
Her family and friends were determined to see that Fi's wonderful campaign work continued and so established The Fi Radford Memorial Fund with a focus on encouraging young people to get involved in securing a safe and sustainable future .

Aims of the fund
Fi was so passionate about her environmental campaigning and was inspired by young people's creative ideas and energy. She was very mindful of the fact that the young generation of today needs a safe future and it is beholden to us all to ensure we provide a sustainable planet.
With this in mind, we are encouraging grant applications that encourage young people’s understanding of the environment and awareness of environmental issues such as climate change, pollution, deforestation and endangered flora and fauna.
The fund will aim to support young people’s participation in peaceful, non-violent campaigning in the area of climate change and the environment.
In particular, the fund aims to support specifically young people between the ages of 11 - 24 from diverse ethnic populations and/or whose financial & social backgrounds may restrict their potential to participate, by providing specific small grants.
In November 2019 Fi gave a TEDx presentation in Bristol titled What did you do in the Climate Crisis, Granny. Fi encourages the older generation to get active on climate change and help support the youth. The talk received high praise and has been seen by over 10,000 people.
