This aims to raise the money to fund a memorial garden for Jade in Bristol, to mark the first anniversary of her passing.

New stretch target

Wow, cannot quite believe in a matter of hours how much we raised- with so many rewards left, and so many rewards still too drop. If we are honest, the first target was a little under what we need so let's go for the best garden we can. 

With £1800 we can achieve so much, not just basic planting but we can really choose the best bench, pathway, plants and look into so more detailed and effective bug hotels, animal attracting planters and even look at potentially some big, big, ideas. 


Jade sadly passed away on July 9th 2019 and to make the anniversary we want to create a memorial garden full of her favourite plants and a haven for wildlife that she loved so much. After such a tragic event we want this memorial garden to be a beautiful space that brings joy to anyone who visits. Those who knew her, and those that didn’t.

Jade touched so many lives and was a truly special human who brought laughter and smiles to everyone who had the pleasure of meeting her. Jade adored nature and wildlife, she always found the time to stop and enjoy anything she stumbled upon. This garden will embody all the things she loved so much about nature to a spot in Bristol.

Fran is currently working closely with Bristol Council to confirm the location, the size, and landscaping plans but the bigger the budget the better the garden. The outline plans include bee and butterfly friendly wildflower patches, a tree, a path to a bench with a memorial plaque, and raised flower beds. 

 

We have been kindly gifted generous reward packages by people who knew and loved Jade. These amazingly talented friends have spent time and money creating them and we want to say a huge thank you again, to every contributor - it means so much. Of course, we are still accepting any other pounds, pennies, or gifts for reward packages as donations to raise as much money as possible.

This is a non-profit organisation, in which all the proceeds raised will go to funding the garden. If any additional money is raised and not used there will be a poll for additional charities to receive any additional funds not spent.

Please keep your eyes peeled on the Facebook page for photos of the bundles, and more exciting reward packages which will be dropping over the next couple of months. 

 

Love and Jadie hugs xoxox

In the coming weeks and months, we will be trying to raise as much money as possible to contribute towards this development so if anybody is interested in fundraising or becoming a volunteer and getting your hands dirty, please contact frandavis92@gmail.com
