What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

Story

As everyone knows, Lorna died in August this year after an amazingly brave fight with cancer. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends throughout her life and illness, we will all remember her laughing, having fun, and being a good friend to us all.

One of the ways in which so many of us enjoyed Lorna's friendship and company was at motoring events, driving holidays and social meetings, and her loss has left a big gap in the smart car community.  

We thought it was be nice to honour her memory and have somewhere we all visit from time to time where we can think about the fun times we shared with this remarkable lady.

The British Motor Museum have kindly given us permission to buy a bench to put on the side lawn near where we have parked up for meets in recent years. To be suitable for public use it has to be sturdy and have a decent concrete hard standing. It will also have a commemorative plaque dedicating it to Lorna. This means it is not going to be cheap, but will last for years to come and no doubt be enjoyed my many. We feel sure that Lorna would approve "doing the job properly", and Jim is happy that we go ahead with this as a smart community.

If you can make a contribution to this fundraising, please do, and let's have somewhere to sit and smile back on happy times. If we raise more money than is needed for this, any excess will be passed on to St. Peters Hospice in Bristol who looked after Lorna.
