Charlie Bayne was an undergraduate at Trinity College, Cambridge, from 1985 to 1989. Paralysed from the shoulders downwards, he was a wheelchair user and was looked after by a series of volunteer carers.
Charlie was an enthusiastic traveller. He went on many journeys with carers or other friends while he was a student. Within the British Isles, he travelled as far as the north of Scotland and west of Ireland. Trips abroad included St Petersburg and the southern United States. Charlie gained great satisfaction and a sense of freedom from these travels.
After Charlie died in July 1990, money he had earned was used to establish the Charlie Bayne Travel Trust. It exists to help other disabled students at Cambridge enjoy the same sort of experiences as he did.
Family and friends of Dominique Oliver (1978 to 1999) have also given to this fund in her memory. Dominique was a recipient of a travel grant from the Trust in 1997, which she used to fund a trip to Italy.
