As some of you may know my dad Dave Hayward recently passed away, because of the horrible disease, cancer, he was a very strong character and kept fighting until the end. He will be forever loved and missed by many.


Dave was an amazing photographer and loved taking photos of things that were a challenge and took a liking to wildlife (cover photo).
There's a lovely lake where Dave used to spend hours upon hours waiting for the "Perfect Picture". He would say he's popping out for an hour, but then will return home six, seven hours later, which he then would stay up most of the night editing and posting his photos online to his viewers. He was such a free spirit, especially when he had his camera at his hands.

Dave used to always say a bench by the lake would be lovely, just to sit there and watch the birds fly freely, chirping away to themselves as the sun would begin to set.

We are aiming to raise £250 for the bench and to have a plaque on it in remembrance of him. Where his family and friends have that little go to, even if it's to sit and think, read a book or even if it's to sit back and watch the birds, just like Dave did.

Hopefully we achieve this and get this bench in memory to an amazing son, brother, husband, dad, friend. Any sized donation, big or small will really be appriciated!

Many thanks in advance
- Dave's family.
