    Laughing John. A deserved memorial for 50 years of sharing happiness in Rayleigh

    I would like to start a fundraiser for a memorial bench to celebrate the life of laughing John, the biggest celebrity to come out of Rayleigh (back off Mark Francois)

    The aim is to raise £1000... (I feel Rochford DC will contribute heavily to commemorate a notable person within our towns modern day history)

    Any additional funds will be donated to Coombwood Resorce Centre in Rayleigh who help assist people who are suffering from mental health issues in our area.

    John is a true part of Rayleigh‘s modern history and he deserves to be remembered and celebrated much the same as we remember the Dutch Cottage and the Windmill, John should have a permanent, prominent place in our town.

    Thank you for many years of Laughter John ♥️

        This man proved there is no shame in mental illness and it shouldn't be hidden.


      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.

      Great people make things happen

      Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

      Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
