I was very sad to see the memory bench for Nick Marshall vandalised - its near to the football pitches off Highfield Park Drive. I didn't know Nick and I don't know his family but I felt so sad to see the mindless damage that had been done to the bench. I'd like to raise enough money to replace it using a more permanent solid handcarved wooden bench like the sort they have over in Heartwood Forest - it would tie in well with the lovely carvings that theTrust have recently put in place and hopefully feature woodland animals in its design.

I have had permission from the Trust to set up this fundraiser and they in turn have confirmed with Nicks mum that she is happy that we go ahead. We need to raise about £700 to get the new bench as it will be hand made.

Every penny counts so please help if you love Highfield Park and want to rest your legs in a lovely spot one day on the new bench!

thank you

I didn't know you, but nobody should have their memorial vandalised
