The Robert Eaton Memorial Fund are hosting a sponsored walk in memory of Jacob Schilt, as well as the other victims who sadly lost their lives during the Shoreham Airshow disaster.

Jacob was part of our fundraising team at REMF, raising almost £1,000 by taking part in three REMF Challenge Matches against Crystal Palace.

The planned walk is approximately 4 miles long and will take participants from the Memorial footbridge in Shoreham, along the A27 foot path to Worthing United’s ground in Lyons Farm. This will symbolise the journey that Jacob and Matthew (who he was travelling with) could sadly never finish.

The money raised by donations will go to Worthing United Youth Football Club to provide them with the funds to ensure their kids can develop their football in a healthy and safe environment.

We would like you to join the 2015 REMF squad, Jacobs family and friends and Brighton CEO Paul Barber for this walk and help celebrate a life that was ended way to soon.

The walk will start at 10am and will take approximately 2 hours to complete. We are encouraging participants to make it a colourful celebration of Jacobs life and would like everyone to wear colours/shirts of teams you support/play for, or colours/shirts you may have played football or cricket with Jacob.

Anyone who wishes to participate in the walk should register your interest by emailing REMF Vice Chairman Brett Mendoza at
