When the David Hoyle Foundation was founded, one of its main objectives was the support future generations through education. It is therefore fitting that one of the priority projects that the foundation is looking into is funding much-needed maintenance and improvements to the schools in Nguti, Marceline's home town in Cameroon.

The Crondall Triathlon has been one of the highlights of the village's social calendar for many years, being enjoyed by the many spectators and supporters (if not those taking part!).

David took part in the 2017 event with Emily, his youngest daughter Emily, just two days before he was killed. This year Emily took part again, this time with her mother and Andrew Barber.
