Trevor was a pupil and later a governor of Cranleigh School. His brother, five children and other family members also attended the school. An ambition of Trevor's was to lead a fundraising campaign to build a new sports centre at the school, but his death prevented this. With encouragement from the headmaster, Trevor's eldest son, Benjamin, took on this challenge.
With donations from Sir Richard Branson, friends of Cranleigh School and Trevor's five children, the funds were raised and the Trevor Abbott Sports Centre was opened by Sir Richard in 2002.
To support the inclusive play and leisure for disabled children, the Abbott Five Foundation Founders donated £50,000 to this centre, which was opened by Sir Damon Hill in 2008.
