£3,344raised of £3,500 target by 101 supporters

    Weʼve raised £3,344 to fund a defibrillator and plaque at South Reading Community Centre in memory of Matthew Farrall, a true Whitley lad

    Reading, UK
    Funded on Sunday, 30th September 2018

    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.


    Matthew Farrall, a Whitley boy to the core, died suddenly on 20 April. He had many talents, including writing for the Whitley Pump, local historical knowledge and an infectious enthusiasm for life.

    It feels fitting that a legacy is left in the heart of the community for the heart of the community.

      First met Matty on the terraces at the Tilehurst End, so must be around 25 yrs ago. Always enjoyed conversations with him and sad there will be no more. His articles on Whitley Pump are worth a read.
