Weʼre raising £400 to provide a memorial bench as a tribute to Dawn Inskip ... But we have had to increase it to £400 to include delivery etc.
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.
The bench is now in place and we officially 'unveiled' it this afternoon. Please visit this link to see the pictures of the becnh you helped to fund and thank you from the bottom of our hearts xx
Just an update for everyone. Carly and Paul have decided it might be too difficult for her to see a bench dedicated to her mom every day at the bird sanctuary and have suggested a couple of alternatives. Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordhsire have agreed to have the bench for Dawn and I have withdrawn the funds in order to pay them for the sponsored bench. Once it is purchased, installed and the plaque is up I will post here and on my blog dollys deeamings so you can all see her memorial bench and of course, will be able to see it in situ if and when you visit. I am requesting it by the white lion enclosure as she loved them so much.
There has been such an outpouring of love and support for Dawn Inskip that I felt, as a scrapping community, we ought to do something as a lasting tribute to Dawn. I have spoken with her daughter Carly and we think perhaps something like a bench with a plaque about Dawn hopefully placed at the bird sanctuary where Carly works and which Dawn loved so much. I have started a Just Giving page and hope that members of the scrapping community who thought so much of Dawn and her creative talent will stand behind this project and enable this lasting reminder to become a reality. Please pass this link on to others who were touched by Dawn, her friendship and her creativity so that, together, we can make this come true. Dawn was such an amazing lady and something tangible to reflect that from all of us would be marvellous. Karen (Scrapdolly)

I only knew Dawn through her art which brought me much joy over the years. I will miss having new things of hers to look forward to. My heart goes out to her family and loved ones.
