£400raised of £250 target by 19 supporters

Weʼre raising £250 to Purchase an IBCC Ribbon of Remembrance memorial stone for Flt Sgt Bob Matson, he was taken from us too early at the age of 52.

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.

Story

Bob was a great guy, mentor and confidante, when things seemed low in the workplace, you could always count on Bob to lift the mood, his presence, smile and chuckle made the place seem brighter. His immense depth of knowledge and experience meant he was the person everyone would turn to if they had an issue, he would generally have the answer or knew someone who did.
Bob will forever be missed and we would like to immortalise him by having a memorial stone place on the Ribbon of Remembrance at the International Bomber Command Centre. This stone will be 300mm x 150mm and has up to 54 characters over 3 lines. Please help us achieve this, any donations received over the £250.00 would be donated collectively to St Barnabas Hospice, the fantastic people who took care of Bob in his last weeks.
Thank you so much.

    Dear all, I am currently in the process of gathering all donations together. I will be liaising with the IBCC regarding a request from the family and will be purchasing the stone once the funds from this page become available. I will also be talking to the accounts flight at RAF Waddington to source a big cheque to present St Barnabas Hospice totalling the remaining donations as requested by the family. Again, thank you for your generous donations, Duane.

    We have been inundated with donations, both on this page and in the workplace, so far we have reached the target and then some (£590 in total so far) it is so humbling. Once the order has been placed for the stone I will keep people updated as to the progress and when the stone has been placed on the Ribbon of Remembrance. Thank you everyone so much.
