Weʼve raised £450 to help raise money for a memorial bench.

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.
Griffith Gwynfor Jones, known as 'Gwyn', was a loving husband, brother, father, and Grandfather. Sadly, Gwyn passed away very suddenly in February 2008, and is very much missed by all family and friends. To mark 10 years since Gwyn's passing, we are hoping to raise money to support the purchase of a memorial bench, to be located at Pen-y-Bont Station, where both Gwyn, and his father worked for many years. This also coincides with the Bala Lake Extension Project, which involves the extension of the line from Pen-y-Bont station, into the heart of Bala. The Bala Lake Railway Trust are working with us, to provide a suitable location for the bench. Gwyn spent the early part of his life living in Bala, and had many happy hours on the Bala railway with friends and colleagues, so we feel this is a fitting tribute to such a great man.
Any donation, big or small, will be greatly appreciated, and any left over funds will be donated to the Bala Lake Railway Trust. Thank you.
