A charitable trust was launched in memory of an exceptional teenager who died suddenly.

Oluwatobi Adeyemi, a member of the Sutton Christian Centre and the only child of two doctors, collapsed and died in front of his parents at the family home in Vicarage Close, Kingswood, on March 5, 2011.

His family and trustees launched an educational foundation in memory of the 16-year-old on Friday, September 21, at the Whitgift School for Boys in South Croydon, where Tobi was a sixth-former.
