Funding a memorial bench for our Dad
We did it
On 19th June 2018 we successfully raised £1,055 with 21 supporters in 35 days

We aim to raise money to get a memorial bench & plaque installed in London Fields where where my Dad used to live & enjoy spending time.

We have his funeral coming up in mid may but we would really love to have a memorial bench installed into one of the existing bench spots in London Fields. Any funds raised will go towards the bench and memorial plaque in memory and celebration of his life: Growing up in Hackney, raising children and grandchildren in the borough and eventually laying to rest in the same area he loved and lived his whole life. 

It is a very big ask but the funeral costs and logistical responsibilities have meant that we are all quickly running out of money. So we ask you if you can help to donate towards the cause for something in our locality that we all can remember him by - as a wonderful dad, a kind hearted and generous man and as a force of nature within our community.

If we raise our target, it will be enough to install the bench and anything above the 800 mark will go towards the memorial plaque. 

Thanking you! Nic, Tom, Ben, Jo and Alex
