The Bobby Dorka Foundation Trust

21-03-1992 – 13-04-2013

“The star that shines twice as bright, lives half as long”


Registered Charity Number 1156359

The Bobby Dorka Foundation Trust (BDFT) was launched in 2013 after the passing of the beloved Bobby Dorka due to a sudden pulmonary embolism. Bobby had only just turned the tender age of 21 in March 2013 but decided that his journey in this form of life was complete less than a month later.

Since then, all the hearts that Bobby touched, who now channel his pure and beaming energy through themselves, have made it their mission to touch many more hearts and spread the positivity that Bobby always carried himself by setting up the BDFT.

The aim of the Bobby Dorka Foundation Trust is to help without prejudice, local, national and worldwide causes and disasters as well as individuals that may need our support to live the life that they deserve.

Bobby’s goal was to become a well-known figure for helping others, so by spreading his energy and sharing his belief of living a life filled with happiness and love, we will fullfil his wish by helping those who are less fortunate and in need.

Please help us in making Bobby’s vision a reality by supporting The Bobby Dorka Foundation Trust so together we can help change people’s lives for the better.

We are extremely grateful for any donations and will make certain that every penny goes to those who need it the most.

We greatly appreciate you taking the time to read this and for your support.

On behalf of everyone at the Bobby Dorka Foundation Trust, we would like to say
