The Cameron Bespolka Trust was set up in memory of Cameron. He loved nature.

He photographed it, blogged about it, immersed himself in it. Birdwatching was a major part

of his life. We create and sponsor outdoor events for young people from every

background so they might discover that same passion for all things wild and natural.
