On Saturday afternoon, Professor Stephen Hawking's funeral took place in Cambridge, and hundreds of people took to the streets to pay their respects.

The 76 year old died peacefully on March 14th.

However, the physicist, cosmologist, author and all round genius left a final surprise of an Easter lunch.


A card on each of the tables told guests the meal was “a gift from Stephen”.

UK charity FoodCycle provides free meals for people who are hungry, lonely or isolated, and they received a donation from the Hawking family.

As a result of their generosity, 50 people including the elderly, the homeless and people with mental health issues were treated to a special dinner courtesy of the man himself.
