    Weʼve raised £4,120 to create a lasting legacy in memory of our friend Pippa Whiteward, one who gave so much of her time and efforts for her community.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    We would like to raise this money to create a lasting legacy for our friend Pippa, whom we tragically lost on Saturday 29th October.

    Pippa was heavily involved with the local community, she was a Town Councillor, a volunteer on the local nature reserves and a member of the local amateur dramatic society. Her family would like any monies raised to go towards a community project or similar.

    Pippa always put herself out to help others, wether cutting back brambles on public footpaths, trying to save our local children's centre or gamely agreeing to wear a Shaun the Sheep outfit for days on end. She made a beautiful elf at the Marsh Farm Christmas events, and was a very much lived member of staff there.

    If you spoke to Pippa about her family, the pride and love for them shone through. She was known for her wonderful smile and very naughty giggle. Few if any could have guessed of her battles with depression as she was always the first to be there with a hug and cuddle should anyone be feeling down. She loved to dance and was always singing and bopping along as she went about her business.

    Tragically, Pippa, whilst suffering from postnatal depression, couldn't see herself as others did, and took her own life, leaving a devastated family behind including a loving husband and two small boys the youngest being less than 5 months old.

    Thank you in advance for all your support, lets raise enough to create a lasting tribute to our friend, Pippa

        Thinking of Gary and the boys, hope the memorial in the town gives you all hope for the future with a lasting memory of the lovely pippa. I only met her once fleetingly but her smile will stay with me
