raised of £500 target by 107 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,565 to commemorate the life and love of Mrs Barbara Mills (BEM) with a friendship bench for the children of St James' Primary and pre-school.

    Funded on Wednesday, 8th September 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    With your support, the PSA of St James' primary academy would like to purchase a buddy/friendship bench, which will be dedicated to the memory of Mrs Mills.

    Mrs Mills (Barbara) played an enormous and invaluable role in our church, pre-school and school community and was loved by all.

    She will always be remembered for her friendly, loving and reassuring smile, that was as big as her generous heart. She was always there for 'her children' as she called them, throughout their pre-school and primary school lives and beyond! A hug when they were sad, a caring smile when they were unsure and encouraging words when they were needed. She taught them so much about life, love and friendship and how to always be kind to others.

    What better way to commemorate the love she had for the children of St James, than with a buddy bench for them to sit on when they are sad, lonely or in need of a friend, or when they just want to remember Mrs Mills.

    (The bench will be sourced by the PSA and the size and type will depend on the amount raised. Any money left over will be used for other commemorative features such as a tree/garden/award trophies/equipment etc or given to a charity chosen by her family).

    If you think she would like this idea and you would like to contribute, please click on the donation link below. Photographs will be shared once the bench has been purchased and installed. Many thanks.

      Thank you all for your generosity. We have already surpassed the target amount and people are still keen to donate - there is much more that we can do beyond a buddy bench and we will use any funds donated to secure a strong legacy for Mrs Mills that makes an impact and improves our children's lives. Thank you!!
