Raising money in order to cover the costs of a memorial bench in Harrold Cemetery in memory of local legend George Knight

by Gabrielle Green in Bedford, England, United Kingdom

As many know, we lost a true local legend 19th April, 2024.


Georgie Knight was known and loved by many in the village and had many stories to tell. Much like the time he spent 48 hours in the local lockup to prove a bet in 1967.

We as a village would like to try and raise money for a bench in his memory which will be placed in the cemetery. A place he spent much of his life, in his time as the local grave digger.

We are hoping to raise £610 which will cover the cost of the bench and the plaque in his memory. All donations are welcome.

Please Note: cash donations are also welcome and these will be able to be collected by Lucie at the Harrold Co-Op. These donations should be named and in an envelope unless wanted to be kept anonymous.
