£1,075raised of £1,500 target by 16 supporters

Weʼre raising £1,500 to help to fund a memorial bench for our Dad, Ian Leslie Highley.

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.


Our Dad sadly and unexpectedly passed away on 11th March this year. We'd love to fund a memorial bench in his name - somewhere special that we can visit to remember him. We are planning on placing it in either Bushy Park, where we spent many happy days together as children, or along the River Thames - at Hampton (where we lived together as family) or Teddington (where Dad lived later in life). We are planning on saving up to fund the memorial, but if any of his other friends and family would like to contribute as well we'd be very grateful. We'll of course let everybody know of the location once the bench is in place.
