£4,165raised of £4,500 target by 89 supporters

Weʼre raising £4,500 to the memory of Kerry Jane Elsdon, known as Kez in school and KJ professionally. Hywellian and dear friend.

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.


Kerry Jane Elsdon, known as Kez to her school friends and KJ later in life, but Janey to her Mum, was born in Pembroke in 1960 and died there on 11 June 2018.

This collection is to help her Mum Val with the inevitable expenses she will have - the estimate for her funeral alone is £4500 so we’re hoping to raise the full amount.

Kerry Jane helped support her Mum and they lived happily in a flat with their cats above the shop where her Dad Keith had once had an Ironmongers, an irony not lost on either of them!

Kerry Jane as educated at Howell's School Llandaff, Cardiff, Mountview Theatre School, London and the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg and kept in contact with many friends from these times.

Her blog makes for interesting reading. Sadly, since returning to the UK she hadn't the time to add to it, but she kept us all informed, amused and, regularly, in stitches with her observations of modern life in Facebook.

We will all miss her hugely.

    Just a note to thank everyone across the world who donated and shared - we made 92% of the target which means Kerry Jane's Mum Val has the peace of mind knowing that her rent is paid until at least the end of the year. Kerry Jane would have been quite embarrassed about this but it just goes to show how much we all loved her! Thanks again Bridget xx

    We never met, but from what I have read, my life would have been so enriched by the experience.
