£3,155raised of £5,000 target by 52 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,155 to fund a memorial bench for Carol Yoxall in Kew Gardens.

    Funded on Tuesday, 30th January 2018

    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 nonprofit.

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


    Carol sadly lost her long and courageous battle against cancer on Monday 25th September. It was her wish to have a bench placed in Kew Gardens in her memory, a place which held many happy memories for her and a place which she loved. She wished it to be situated on the Syon vista which was her favourite place within the gardens. This is intended to be a place where anyone who wishes to can go and remember her. As there is no funeral, we, her family, are setting up this page to enable any of her friends, colleagues and acquaintances who would like to make a contribution in her memory to do so. It is our intention to have the bench in place by late Spring next year which was Carol's favourite time of year in Kew when the bluebells are in full bloom. We also intend to have a celebration of her life in Kew Gardens when the bench is unveiled to which all are welcome. This will be a joyous occasion as she would have wished.

      Bonnie, not only was your mum a great friend of mine for over 10 years, she was one the nicest people I have ever met. A bench at Kew is a wonderful idea. My very best wishes. Mike (Edinburgh) xxx

      For my dear friend Carol. You didn't have as many years in your life as you should, but you touched the hearts of so many in the years you had. Rest peacefully. You are very much missed.
