£1,560raised of £5,000 target by 22 supporters

Weʼre raising £5,000 to purchase a memorial bench at Wakehurst Place in memory of Dr. John Mansell.

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 with the grounds, for all to enjoy.

      We'll miss John so much, but especially at family gatherings, he was always on hand with his camera to capture the moment.

      I have very happy memories of dear John when we both met at PRL Laboratories. A true gentleman. Rest well John.
