raised of £1,000 target by 39 supporters

    Weʼve raised £820 to Help fund the installation of a new bench at Shimmers' graveside and a plaque at his favourite spot in Dorset.

    Funded on Monday, 20th August 2018

    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.


    Thank you for visiting the donation page to help fund the cost of having a special bench placed at Shimmers’ graveside with a plaque designed by his immediate family.

    Sgt. Nathan Shimwell - Royal Engineers, sadly left us on 24 July 2017 and is sorely missed by all those he knew.

    His family are currently unaware that we are raising funds to help them out, we‘d like to surprise them at his Osnabruck reunion memorial weekend on the 4 Aug. We are reaching out to his military friends and comrades far and wide, especially those who can’t make the weekend and want to do their part in memory of our fallen brother.

    The full cost of the bench, plaque and placement is £680, and Nath's family have been informed they are now top of the council list for it to be installed after a 12 month wait. If we can get near that amount to help his family out and show them just how much his military friends and family love him, it will be an amazing gesture they‘ll never forget.

    Please note: We have set a target of £1000. This is to cover the cost of the bench, and if possible, to have a plaque/memorial place installed at his favourite place in Dorset by his kids. Anything raised over this amount will be donated to a military charity who have had a big input with his family since he passed away.

    Your generosity on this occasion will be gratefully received guys.

    Thank you.
