What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


Bryn Lewis, the founder and creator of The Brook music venue Portswood was an inspiration and role model to many. Bryn loved plants and so, in memory of him, we would love to realise his dream and vision of a creating a beautiful Brook Garden for all our customers to share in his memory.

It is something that Bryn was passionate about making a reality, a place where people could come and enjoy a drink whilst listening to live music outdoors. Unfortunately, as a venue we have been unable to fund this project. Donations would allow us to include a stage and create a space for outdoor live music events. We know that Bryn would have been so proud of such an achievement, providing local artists with an additional platform to perform.

We will endeavour to include any messages/quotes people leave when they donate and make them part of the garden. All donators will then be invited to early release tickets to a memorial garden launch event.

We thank you in advance for joining us as we continue Bryn's legacy in creating a garden in his memory that his family, customers and staff can enjoy.
