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.


April 18th 2019 will mark the 10 year anniversary of Daniels passing.

Its crazy to think that we all lost such a big part of our lives 10 years ago at such young ages, When looking back at it i see that we have all come so far and that Daniel would be very proud of us all.

To mark the anniversary i have been in touch with the council for some months now and i want to get a memorial bench in memory of Daniel, this can be a symbol and somewhere to go to for family and friends to relax and have a nice little reminder of him for years to come.

Daniel was such a big personality who lit up many peoples lives, he always had a smile and a joke to crack. He was always there when you needed him and wouldn't want a thing in return, he was a true gentleman.

I have sent them a list of areas that would be ideal (Richmond, Twickenham, Kew, Sheen, Ham).

The process is as follows (sent by the council) -

In terms of costs we offer two different types of hardwood benches, oak and iroko. Oak retails at £853, excluding VAT and Iroko retails at £555 excluding VAT. Standard sized stainless steel plaques cost £97 excluding VAT for up to 5 lines of 36 characters (including spaces) and a larger plaque costs £138 and accommodates 5 lines of 54 characters (including spaces). Inscriptions are £59 per board for up to 30 characters with additional characters charged at £2.50 each.

A small delivery charge of £65 is then added but the Council cover the cost of installation.

Once we have confirmed a location, the next step is to think about the wording and then when you are ready to let me know and I will ask our supplier to generate a proof and quote for you to consider. Once the order is confirmed, you will be asked to make payment direct to the supplier and the bench will go into production once payment has been processed.

Depending on the choice of wood and inscription a memorial bench can cost between £800 and £1,400. Once location and wording has been finalised, our supplier will provide a proof and quote for approval.

Now ive set a target of £1,450 because i wanted to see how much we can raise first before picking either bench option. (plus Just giving take a small fee)

If we can just try and raise as much as we can and try and have the bench in a process by April, anything at all would help, it all adds up!! anyone can donate! anyone at all! so SHARE SHARE SHARE! maybe we could have a few drinks and a unveil when we get it.

Much Love XxX
