    Weʼve raised £1,305 to give Johanne the send off she wanted!

    Funded on Wednesday, 30th August 2017

    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 nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Sadly, my beautiful big sister Johanne passed away on Saturday the 29th of July 2017, from a rare form of kidney cancer.

    Jo loved animals and nature and asked us before she died, if she could be buried in a woodland burial site, so she could complete the life cycle, and be at one with the earth.

    As a family, we knew Johanne was unwell, but we were all really shocked at how quickly her health deteriorated and how fast we lost her.

    Johanne never asked for anything her whole life. Ever! She used to collect rocks as a child, rather than ask for toys, and when she got married, she opted to have the reception at home in the garden, because she just wanted a simple, happy life.

    So, for the girl that never asked us for anything, I’d just like to ensure that she gets the exact burial she wanted, because I loved her so much and didn’t tell her nearly often enough.

    To do this, I’d just like to reach out to everyone who knew and loved her, or anyone who knows me and my family and just ask for a little bit of help towards funeral costs, to make sure it’s as perfect as she was.

    Thank you so much,

      Hi Guys, Just a quick update: Unfortunately, Johanne's husband has decided to have her cremated in Slough crematorium. We have't been involved in the planning process and so time and date is still to be confirmed, although we believe it will be on the 16th of August. Our family are currently organising a memorial plaque/service to take place at the GreenAcres Chiltern site that she had requested and money raised will go towards this. Thank you for all your ongoing help and support.
