Weʼre raising £1,500 to place a bench in Russell Square in the memory of Catherine Candon de Sousa

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.

Story

Catherine Candon de Sousa died on 20th March 2018 at the age of 91 years and she is buried in Dublin, which was her birthplace. For much of the last 20 years of her life she lived close to Russell Square in Holborn, London. She was well known in the locality and worked as a volunteer in the British Museum and the Foundling Museum. She loved to spend time in Russell Square and would often meet friends there when the weather permitted!

Catherine's family and friends are planning to dedicate a bench with a plaque in her memory, which can be visited by family and friends when in London. The cost of this will be £1500 which the immediate family will pay substantially towards, but other friends or family can also contribute using this page.

    Update from the Page owner

    Dear Friends of Catherine de Sousa Thank you so much for your kind and generous donation towards the memorial bench for our late mother. We wanted to give you this update as it has been some time since we were in touch. We have just spoken with Camden Council again and they have told us that we are still on the waiting list. They expect to be able to go ahead some time later this year. We will keep you informed. With very best wishes Carlos, Albert and Angela de Sousa

    Thank you so much for your kind and generous donation towards the memorial bench for Catherine. We wanted to give you this update as it has been some time: We originally contacted Camden Council in May of last year. They told us that there was a waiting list and our application was added to that list. We have just spoken with them again and they have told us that we have not yet reached the top of the waiting list! They expect to be able to go ahead some time later this year. We will keep you informed of progress. Carlos, Albert and Angela

    We all cherish the memories of the times we spent with Catherine as children. We will remember her as a wise, strong woman, who shared her knowledge and love generously.
