The James Barney Foundation is a Christian relief and development organisation that was established in the memory of James Anthony Barney after a tragic accident in February 2008.
James was born on the 7th of October 1991 and died on the 23rd of February 2008, aged 16. He is dearly missed by all those who knew him but far from forgotten.
James was a young boy with an amazing sense of homour and the ability to make people laugh at the drop of a hat. His personality was wild and James was always there to reassure others and make the best out of every situation. Known and recognised amongst his family and friends for his infamaous cheeky smile, which truely did light up the room and warm your heart.
WE SUPPORT OTHERS ON A GLOBAL SCALE, THE HEARTS SHOWN ABOVE HIGHLIGHT THE PLACES WE’VE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO THOSE WHO NEED IT MOST.
Four days after James died on the 27th of February 2008, the biggest earthquake for 250 years hit Nottinghamshire, James hometown, travelling all the way down to Southampton, his family town. His family believe this was a message from James, this was the miracle that gave us hope and allowed us to be strong enough to set up this foundation.
