On the same day as his funeral, a donation from Hawking’s family helped fund the charity FoodCycle’s Easter lunch at Wesley Methodist Church in Cambridge.


FoodCycle Cambridge tweeted that they were “so grateful to the Hawking family for their generous donation so we could give our guests an extra special Easter meal.”

“Lucy Hawking contacted me and mentioned that the family would like to make a donation so that while the funeral was taking place, people would be sitting down to a hot meal on Stephen,” said Alex Collis of FoodCycle.


“It was a really kind gesture that I think fitted well with the sympathy Prof. Hawking felt for people who were having a tough time of things.”


Collis said the generous donation would go on to provide hundreds of meals for older people, people with mental health issues, and the long-term unemployed, besides the city’s homeless.
