Weʼre raising £1,500 to honour James's memory by supporting Synergy Creative Community CIC, a mental health peer-led community organisation based in Brighton.
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.
Our beloved son James (Jamie) took his own life on 9th February 2018, three weeks from his 37th birthday, after bravely battling for years with the agonies of mental illness.
THE JAMES MARLOW MEMORIAL FUND has been set up by his family to raise funds to support Synergy Creative Community CIC, a mental health peer support group in Brighton, East Sussex. They take a creative approach to well-being and mental health by running weekly sessions of art, music, creative writing, cookery and mindfulness meditation, in a supportive and inclusive non-judgemental space.
James benefitted a great deal from these groups, attending many over the years since they started in 2009.
We have created this legacy in his name so that others can continue to feel supported and encouraged to express themselves and unlock their potentials in a safe, inclusive space. Synergy helps to break down barriers associated with mental illness, barriers that can result in people feeling excluded, isolated and very lonely.
The target figure is an arbitrary amount, we’re just trying to raise as much as we can.

I would just like to say thank you so much to everybody who has so generously donated to the James Marlow Memorial Fund. It is helping Synergy enormously, enabling them to stay open to carry on providing essential support to those with mental illness, and they are immensely grateful for your help. I will continue to raise money for Synergy in Jamie’s memory and will alert you to future events through Facebook and the website.

What a great lad James always was. As much pain as his family must be going through, you must be so proud of him and his amazing talents.

Loved so much by his family and friends, the sad loss of James at only 36, my dear nephew's life tragically blighted by deteriorating mental health.I proudly have one of his portraits on my wall.
