    Weʼve raised £2,032 to assist with funeral expenses for John Christopher Calvert

    Funded on Friday, 19th February 2021

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    John passed away on 4th August 2020 at home aged 75 years.

    He has no one to arrange his funeral and this is now being done by the Nottingham City Council at public expense.

    John was a quiet courteous gentleman and was a member of the Nottingham Unitarian Church. He was a member of the Liberal Democrat party and stood in every local election from 1987 to 2019. In addition he was a director at the New Mechanics in the City Centre. He played chess and attended the Hastings Congress every year. He assisted the Nottingham Athletic Club and acted as a marshal at events at Harvey Haddon Stadium.

    We hope that anyone who knew John might help with this appeal.

      John was a kind and loyal member of Nottingham Mechanics. He regularly greeted new members and took the trouble to make them feel welcome in his quiet way. Life won't be the same without him.
