Weʼve raised £3,820 to support the ongoing education of Jessica and Jasmine in Thailand, in memory of our friend and colleague Paul Bennett
- Funded on Monday, 14th September 2020
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Paul Bennett worked at Volunteer Edinburgh for 18 years. Paul was an integral part of our organisation, and he was known to many thousands of volunteers who he helped and to all of the organisations that he guided and supported when they were looking for volunteers.
Paul was kind, funny, completely genuine and a total one-off. He was a talented photographer and a creative web designer. Above all else Paul was a dedicated father. His children: Aarun, Jasmine and Jessica, were his world and his complete focus.
His friends at Volunteer Edinburgh want to raise £2000 to help support the ongoing education of his twin daughters Jasmine and Jessica, who live in Thailand with their mother, Paul’s partner Jeab. When he knew his time was limited all Paul cared about was making sure that his girls were looked after and given the best possible education. Paul lived a very frugal life and he did this to make sure that he could give as much as he possibly could to support his girls and make sure they had the best start in life.
We want to remember Paul in the best way we can and help his family as best we can by supporting the education of his young daughters. Please help us if you are able to.

A huge thank you to everyone who has donated, sent a message of support, or shared a memory of Paul. We're overwhelmed with your generosity and kindness, and we know Paul would be too. Paul would have celebrated his 50th birthday on 13th September. We'll leave this page open until then for any final contributions.

Paul was so kind and funny to us in our time sharing office space at Volunteer Edinburgh. It was clear how much he loved his children. He will be missed. Deepest sympathies from all at Tripod
