Hundreds line Cambridge streets to honor Stephen Hawking

В Британии простились со Стивеном Хокингом

(Picture: @FoodCycleCamb/Twitter) Professor Hawking passed away peacefully at his home in Cambridge on March 14 aged 76.

They said that 50 guests at the meal had "a little cheer in honour of Stephen Hawking" before they tucked into the meal.

A charity helping the hungry was able to put on an extra-special Easter lunch - thanks to Stephen Hawking's final gift.

"Our volunteers across the country work hard every week to make these meals happen, and it is wonderful that Stephen Hawking and his family have given their support to our Cambridge project". On the same day, a donation from his family helped to fund the charity FoodCycle's Easter lunch at Wesley Methodist Church.

Hawking's funeral was held at Great St. Mary's Church, part of the University of Cambridge, with thousands of well-wishers lining the streets to bid farewell to the scientist. There was also a reading by Astronomer Royal Martin Reese and eulogies by one of Hawking's children and a former student. Model Lily Cole, newsreader Charlotte Hawkins and Queen guitarist Brian May were also in attendance, as was comedian Dara Ó Briain, who made a documentary about Hawking in 2015.


FoodCycle Cambridge said: 'We're so grateful to the Hawking family for their generous donation so we could give our guests an extra special Easter meal yesterday.

The church bell tolled 76 times as his coffin arrived, once for each year of his life. And people around the world were inspired by his personal story: Hawking accomplished all of this while coping with Lou Gehrig's disease, which robbed the physicist of most of his motor function over the years.

Plenty of celebrities were present at Mr Hawking's funeral, including Eddie Redmayne who played Stephen in the critically acclaimed The Theory of Everything.

The funeral for Stephen Hawking took place at the weekend before his ashes were buried near the grave of Sir Isaac Newton at Westminster Abbey.

The church where Saturday's private funeral service was held is near to Gonville and Caius College.
