£2,160raised of £5,000 target by 32 supporters

    Weʼve raised £2,160 to purchase a memorial bench at Wakehurst Place in memory of Dr. John Mansell.

    Funded on Wednesday, 12th September 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 charity.

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


    As you all know we lost our dear John after a short illness on the 31st July. John often mentioned that he would like to have a memorial bench at Wakehurst Place for everyone to enjoy and remember him by. We thought that it would be really nice to fulfill his wish. After enquiring with Kew, we were told that the bench costs £5000 so we thought, instead of buying flowers for the funeral, we could ask for a contribution towards the bench that he wanted. The bench will be placed in his favourite spot within the grounds, for all to enjoy.

      I had a great respect for John both in his scientific work and his efforts on behalf of Philips pensioners
