    Story

    This is the legitimate page set up to replace the page titled “Jordan, Corey, Matt, Ryan Memorial”, which was launched following the collision on the A4 Derry Hill back in August 2020. That GoFundMe page has since been found to be fraudulent.

    My name is Su Johnson and I am a close friend of Amanda Parke, Matt’s mum. The families of Corey, Matt & Ryan have agreed to me setting this up and our Mayor, Robert Merrick has kindly offered to be the beneficiary of the fund and ensure the money received is distributed appropriately towards the memorial so many people previously donated to.

    It's been decided a garden of reflection in Castlefields Park will be created to provide a safe space for family and friends to remember the boys as well as a quiet and reflective location for the whole community.

    Thanks for reading this and a huge thank you if you decide to support this cause and donate.

      Hi everyone, The Garden of Reflection construction starts on Monday 19/7. It’s planned to take 4 days and this is where I need help. There will be a delivery of compost during w/c 2nd August, are any of you free during that week to help distribute it? Planting will take place 6th and 7th August. Are you free on one/both of these dates to help plant? If you can help, please email me with the dates and times you are free so I can build up a picture of volunteers during that week. My email address is sj2787@live.com. Thanks in hope Su Johnson

      Hi everyone, sorry it's been a while since my last update. I'm pleased to let you know the Garden of Reflection design has been finalised (check out the cover photo). The path has been ordered and will be laid in mid July. The seating has also been ordered and we hope to have the armillary and planting scheme confirmed by 23rd June. All this is great news and means we are on track to have the garden completed by early August. Thank you to everyone who's donated. Best wishes, Su

      Hi everyone, we've done it! £8,000 has been donated to replace the money collected fraudulently last year. The generosity of the local community is amazing and on behalf of everyone involved, thank you. I have changed the amount we are raising to £14,000 as that's what the garden is likely to cost. We'll know more when we get the detailed designs in the next few days. Once the final design is chosen, I'll update you all again. Also a massive thanks and good luck to all those doing the sponsored walk on the 22nd. Best wishes, Su
