About our Funds

The Yellow Heart Trust has two main funds: the Antonio Vasconcellos Fund, and Rob's Wish Fund.

Antonio Vasconcellos, along with 50 others, died on the occasion of his 26th birthday in the Marchioness riverboat tragedy on the River Thames in 1989. A fund was established in the memory of this remarkable man who balanced a career as a successful fund manager with the roles of entrepreneur, writer, musician and philanthropist.

The Rob's Wish Fund was created by Alex Fontaine, YHT's founder, shortly after his death in 2012. The aim of the fund is to support those suffering from the problems of addiction.
