In memory of Russell Charleston

This fundraiser is in memory of Russell Charleston, who sadly passed away in tragic and unexpected circumstances on Wednesday 27th November 2019.  All funds raised will be collected by William Spong, a very close friend of Russell's, who will ensure all donations reach Marlena, Russell's wife. 

It has been setup on behalf of Russell’s colleagues at Charles Edward Ltd, who will miss his infectious ways. The CE family and our subcontractors with whom Russell worked closely have been asking how they could help at what is a tough time of year to lose a loved one.  We have set this page up to support his wife Marlina and his beautiful two young daughters to show just how much we thought about him.

Russell was an exemplary colleague, known for his wit and charm on site – he would call everyone ‘pal’, regardless of who they were (or if he even knew them) and he represented the company exactly how we would want to be represented. Initially working in our Special Works division, Russell spent time on a project in Amsterdam for CE where he was very popular on site and became a long standing member of that team. He then moved onto projects back in London, recently working as a key member on our large fit out projects in the Scalpel and Wigmore street.

We are all in shock at this sad time and send our thoughts and prayers to Russell’s family, he will be sorely missed by all.

100% of donations will be given to Russell’s wife and daughters to help ease the burden at this time, please give generously.

In the new year, Charles Edward plan to arrange a separate fundraising event to further support Russell’s young family and raise awareness on key industry issues.

If you have been affected by Russell’s passing and would like to speak to someone, help is available. Charles Edward employees have been provided details via email, however if you do not work for Charles Edward you can call Samaritans on 116 123, lines are open 24 hours a day.

We thank everyone in advance for their kind donations.

All funds raised will be collected by William Spong, a very close friend of Russell's, who will ensure all donations reach Marlena, Russell's wife.
