Grace O'Malley Kumar Foundation

A few words about

Charlie Knight book sale

Charlie Knight, a Year 9 student at Felsted School, has single-handedly raised over £1,000 through a book sale this week, and the amount continues to grow. Driven by a cause near and dear to his heart, Charlie has done an exceptional job in his fundraising effort.

Charlie’s family are very close family friends, with Charlie knowing Grace his entire life. 


“I chose to sell my books in support of Grace’s Foundation for two reasons: 1) the money raised will be donated to causes that were important to Grace, and 2) the books will bring joy to children, just as they did for me. Grace was a close family friend who was always kind and willing to help others. We will never forget her, and she will always hold a special place in our hearts.“- Charlie Knight


Well Done Charlie!

This charitable act perfectly encapsulates the values of the Grace O’Malley Kumar Foundation. Not only has Charlie shared the gift of literature, but he has also inspired others to participate in fundraising activities. One of his teachers captured this sentiment perfectly.

You must be incredibly proud of him—what a kind, thoughtful, and empathetic young man.”


We would also like to extend our gratitude to Felsted School for supporting Charlie in this charitable act
