Weʼre raising £2,500 to In memory of Dr Paul Matewele, our amazing colleague and lecturer.


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.


Paul was a leading microbiologist has died after contracting coronavirus. .We were deeply saddened to hear of the death of our much-loved colleague, Dr Paul Matewele. Paul had been with the University for over 30 years and will be a huge loss to colleagues and all the students he has taught and inspired over the years. During our online memorials last week several people asked if they could make a donation in Paul's memory. So we have set up this page in Paul's memory.

We will pass on the funds to his son, William.- 18

    Dear Sheelagh, you and Dr Matewele were and still remain one of my favourite tutors from my studies over 11 years ago. I still emailed him in March of 2020. He will forever be missed and in our hearts

    I was a student at London Met University (formerly UNL) from 1992 to 1996 and Dr Matewele was one of my lecturers. A wonderful teacher and person. I will never forget him. Subrata.xx

    Dr.Matewele taught me and my crazy friends over 15 years ago. He was always polite, softly spoken and sometimes a very funny person. We will miss you Paul. You were one of a kind.
